Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-5778) Fix HLog compression's incompatibilities
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2012 22:21:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-5778?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jean-Daniel Cryans updated HBASE-5778:
--------------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 0.94.4
     Release Note:   (was: To disable WAL compression set hbase.regionserver.wal.enablecompression
to false. )
          Summary: Fix HLog compression's incompatibilities  (was: Turn on WAL compression
by default)

Changing the title to reflect what's being committed. Trunk won't have compression on and
it will keep the compression tests (plus new ones). I opened HBASE-7391 for the OOME.

> I ran some tests to verify if WAL compression should be turned on by default.
> For a use case where it's not very useful (values two order of magnitude bigger than
the keys), the insert time wasn't different and the CPU usage 15% higher (150% CPU usage VS
130% when not compressing the WAL).
> When values are smaller than the keys, I saw a 38% improvement for the insert run time
and CPU usage was 33% higher (600% CPU usage VS 450%). I'm not sure WAL compression accounts
for all the additional CPU usage, it might just be that we're able to insert faster and we
spend more time in the MemStore per second (because our MemStores are bad when they contain
tens of thousands of values).
> Those are two extremes, but it shows that for the price of some CPU we can save a lot.
My machines have 2 quads with HT, so I still had a lot of idle CPUs.
