Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6371) [89-fb] Tier based compaction
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 00:54:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6371?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13478543#comment-13478543

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-6371:
--------------------------------------

Specifically a scenario I'd be interested in, is to keep a days (or two) worth of changes
in a live HBase cluster. In extreme cases this might be lead to 1000's of versions, and scan
performance of the latest version suffers significantly, *especially* after a major compaction
which will cause all version of KVs to be jumbled together in the same file.

> Currently, the compaction selection is not very flexible and is not sensitive to the
hotness of the data. Very old data is likely to be accessed less, and very recent data is
likely to be in the block cache. Both of these considerations make it inefficient to compact
these files as aggressively as other files. In some use-cases, the access-pattern is particularly
obvious even though there is no way to control the compaction algorithm in those cases.
> In the new compaction selection algorithm, we plan to divide the candidate files into
different levels according to oldness of the data that is present in those files. For each
level, parameters like compaction ratio, minimum number of store-files in each compaction
may be different. Number of levels, time-ranges, and parameters for each level will be configurable
online on a per-column family basis.
