Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4089) blockCache contents report
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 15:12:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13082387#comment-13082387
] 

Doug Meil commented on HBASE-4089:
----------------------------------

Let me back up a bit on this...   what is the contract on the 'name' attribute in CachedBlock
(the value class of the internal block cache map)?  What is that supposed to be?

> Summarized block-cache report for a RegionServer would be helpful.  For example ...
> table1
>   cf1   100 blocks, totalBytes=yyyyy, averageTimeInCache=XXXX hours
>   cf2   200 blocks, totalBytes=zzzzz, averageTimeInCache=XXXX hours
> table2
>   cf1  75 blocks, totalBytes=yyyyy, averageTimeInCache=XXXX hours
>   cf2 150 blocks, totalBytes=zzzzz, averageTimeInCache=XXXX hours
> ... Etc.
> The current metrics list blockCacheSize and blockCacheFree, but there is no way to know
what's in there.  Any single block isn't really important, but the patterns of what CF/Table
they came from, how big are they, and how long (on average) they've been in the cache, are
important.
> No such interface exists in HRegionInterface.  But I think it would be helpful from an
operational perspective.
> Updated (7-29):  Removing suggestion for UI.  I would be happy just to get this report
on a configured interval dumped to a log file.
