Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-6980) Parallel Flushing Of Memstores
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 20:25:03 GMT
Kannan Muthukkaruppan created HBASE-6980:

             Summary: Parallel Flushing Of Memstores
                 Key: HBASE-6980
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6980
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Kannan Muthukkaruppan
            Assignee: Kannan Muthukkaruppan

For write dominated workloads, single threaded memstore flushing is an unnecessary bottleneck.
With a single flusher thread, we are basically not setup to take advantage of the aggregate
throughput that multi-disk nodes provide.

* For puts with WAL enabled, the bottleneck is more likely the "single" WAL per region server.
So this particular fix may not buy as much unless we unlock that bottleneck with multiple
commit logs per region server. [Topic for a separate JIRA.]

* But for puts with WAL disabled (e.g., when using HBASE-5783 style fast bulk imports), we
should be able to support much better ingest rates with parallel flushing of memstores.
