Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7051) Read/Updates (increment,checkAndPut) should properly read MVCC
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2012 20:55:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7051?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13485497#comment-13485497
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7051:
--------------------------------------

Thinking about this a bit more. Maybe the "nuclear" option isn't that nuclear after all.
The internalPut or internalDelete of checkAndMutate will wait for all prior transactions to
finish anyway. Now we just wait in the beginning, so we get only slightly less concurrency
but correctness.

I think the same will actually work for Increment and Append and we can get rid of the setting-the-memstoreTS-to-0
nonsense.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.96.0
>            Reporter: Gregory Chanan

> See, for example:
> {code}
> // TODO: Use MVCC to make this set of increments atomic to reads
> {code}
> Here's an example of what I can happen (would probably be good to write up a test case
for each read/update):
> Concurrent update via increment and put.
> The put grabs the row lock first and updates the memstore, but releases the row lock
before the MVCC is advanced.  Then, the increment grabs the row lock and reads right away,
reading the old value and incrementing based on that.
> There are a few options here:
> 1) Waiting for the MVCC to advance for read/updates: the downside is that you have to
wait for updates on other rows.
> 2) Have an MVCC per-row (table configuration): this avoids the unnecessary contention
of 1)
> 3) Transform the read/updates to write-only with rollup on read..  E.g. an increment
 would just have the number of values to increment.
