Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-5716) Make HBASE-4608 easier to use
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 18:40:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5716?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13247496#comment-13247496

Li Pi commented on HBASE-5716:

Gah. Autocorrect - and me being sleepy.

What I meant is, it seems like there exist cases where log replay time and Hlog size on disk
didn't correlate well before, and there will still be some now - has it really ever been much
of an issue?

> HBASE-4608 is a nice feature but after playing with it for a while I think the following
should be fixed to make it easier to use by someone who's not a dev:
>  - Add some signal that says that the feature is turned on. Right now you can {{jstack
| grep KeyValueCompression}} a couple of times and if you get a hit you definitely know it's
on, but otherwise the random user wouldn't know without going through the jira.
>  - Add documentation in the reference guide. At the minimum add {{hbase.regionserver.wal.enablecompression}}
in there with a small description. Better would be to add a section in {{Appendix B}} or something
like that and describe the functionality a bit and who it's useful for. For example, flush
from your brain the knowledge of the patch and read the name of the configuration... now let's
say you have a use case that involves writing easily compressible values. Any normal user
would believe that this is a good tuning parameter for them, but it's just going to waste
CPU cycles.
>  - Add some metrics like we have for HFiles where you get a clue about the compression
