Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-4608) HLog Compression
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 06:17:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4608?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13229010#comment-13229010

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-4608:

@Ted: The HLog compression we're doing here is less complicated and has (far) fewer implications
on other modules compared to HBASE-4218. I don't think that is a good comparison.

bq. LRUDictionary.class is passed to the context

You do have a point.
Maybe instead of saying
boolean compression = reader.isWALCompressionEnabled();
if (compression) {

it could be something like
HLogCompressionType type = reader.getCompressionType();
if (type == ...) {
(just made that up, but you get the idea, and should be an easy change)

@Stack: Is v27 up on RB? I looked at the earlier versions but haven't kept track recently.
I'll promise I'll do a review tomorrow. I find it a bit big to just look at the diff.
44% space saving is pretty awesome. I forget, do we also SNAPPY/LZO/GZ compress the HLogs?

> The current bottleneck to HBase write speed is replicating the WAL appends across different
datanodes. We can speed up this process by compressing the HLog. Current plan involves using
a dictionary to compress table name, region id, cf name, and possibly other bits of repeated
data. Also, HLog format may be changed in other ways to produce a smaller HLog.
