Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-6254) deletes w/ many column qualifiers overwhelm Region Server
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2012 18:12:42 GMT
Ted Tuttle created HBASE-6254:

             Summary: deletes w/ many column qualifiers overwhelm Region Server
                 Key: HBASE-6254
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6254
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: performance, regionserver
    Affects Versions: 0.94.0
         Environment: 5 node Cent OS + 1 master, v0.94 on cdh3u3
            Reporter: Ted Tuttle

Execution of Deletes constructed with thousands of calls to Delete.deleteColumn(family, qualifier)
are very expensive and slow.

On our (quiet) cluster, a Delete w/ 20k qualifiers took about 13s to complete (as measured
by client).

When 10 such Deletes were sent to the cluster via HTable.delete(List<Delete>), one of
RegionServers ended up w/ 5 of the requests and became 100% CPU utilized for about 1 hour.

This lead to the client timing out after 20min (2min x 10 retries).  In one case, the client
was able to fill the RPC callqueue and received the following error:

  Failed all from region=<region>,hostname=<host>, port=<port> java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException:
java.io.IOException: Call queue is full, is ipc.server.max.callqueue.size too small?

Based on feedback (http://search-hadoop.com/m/yITsc1WcDWP), I switched to Delete.deleteColumn(family,
qual, timestamp) where timestamp came from KeyValue retrieved from scan based on domain objects.
 This version of the delete ran in about 500ms.

User group thread titled "RS unresponsive after series of deletes" has related logs and stacktraces.
