Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-4120) isolation and allocation
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 04:08:58 GMT
isolation and allocation

                 Key: HBASE-4120
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4120
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: master, regionserver
    Affects Versions: 0.90.2
            Reporter: Liu Jia

The HBase isolation and allocation tool is designed to help users manage cluster resource
among different application and tables.
When we have a large scale of HBase cluster with many applications running on it, there will
be lots of problems. In Taobao there is a cluster for many departments to test their applications
performance, these applications are based on HBase. With one cluster which has 12 servers,
there will be only one application running exclusively on this server, and many other applications
must wait until the previous test finished.
After we add allocation manage function to the cluster, applications can share the cluster
and run concurrently. Also if the Test Engineer wants to make sure there is no interference,
he/she can move out other tables from this group.
In groups we use table priority to allocate resource, when system is busy; we can make sure
high-priority tables are not affected lower-priority tables
Different groups can have different region server configurations, some groups optimized for
reading can have large block cache size, and others optimized for writing can have large memstore
Tables and region servers can be moved easily between groups; after changing the configuration,
a group can be restarted alone instead of restarting the whole cluster.

We hope our work is helpful.
