Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6254) deletes w/ many column qualifiers overwhelm Region Server
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2012 18:37:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6254?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13398719#comment-13398719

Zhihong Ted Yu commented on HBASE-6254:

>From HRegion, prepareDeleteTimestamps() performs one get operation per column qualifier:
      for (KeyValue kv: kvs) {
        //  Check if time is LATEST, change to time of most recent addition if so
        //  This is expensive.
        if (kv.isLatestTimestamp() && kv.isDeleteType()) {
          List<KeyValue> result = get(get, false);
We perform get() for each kv whose time is LATEST.
This explains the unresponsiveness.

I think we can group some configurable number of qualifiers in each get and perform classification
on result.
This way we can reduce the number of times HRegion$RegionScannerImpl.next() is called.

>                 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:
> {code}
>   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?
> {code}
> 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.
