Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5325) Expose basic information about the master-status through jmx beans
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 06:21:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5325?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13202108#comment-13202108

stack commented on HBASE-5325:

@Enis metrics2 seems a bit out there for us (hadoop 0.23?). We want to run on 0.23 and 1.0
and 2.0, etc., so it'd be a while before we could lean on it.  metrics2 has facility that
would help? (I've not studied it).

@Hitesh Regards "I am still digging into jmx internals but I could not find anything which
mentions it as an option for pushing information.", even if there was a means (IIRC there
is but am likely off), I think we'd have master pulling.

bq. Having the master pull information from all region servers using jmx ( or any other point
to point protocol ) would likely be a bad idea from a performance point of view.

Currently every regionserver sends status every (configurable) second.  Its a fat Writable
serialization of each regionservers counters and current state.  IIRC, this mechanism runs
mostly independent and beside our metrics (so there'll be Writable serialization of regionstate
and if something like tsdb is running, there'll be a JMX serialization of server stating happening
too).  Would be an improvement if we did metrics reporting one way only if possible.

bq. Also, was your intention to have the HMaster be a metric aggregator for the RegionServers'

It does this now for key stats.

bq. I still need to look at nesting of mbeans from various components and also need to look
at the hbase code in more detail to see what kind of management options could be exposed via

I'd be interested in what you think.  We need to figure being able to config a running cluster;
i.e. change Configuration values and have hbase notice.  Having this go via jmx would likely
be like taking the 'killarney road to dingle' as my grandma used to say (its shorter if you
take the tralee road) so maybe jmx is read-only rather than 'management'.

some information through mbeans.
