Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7325) Replication reacts slowly on a lightly-loaded cluster
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2012 23:43:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7325?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13529488#comment-13529488

Jean-Daniel Cryans commented on HBASE-7325:
-------------------------------------------

Sounds good Gabriel, did you test the patch by any chance?

My original worry when I wrote that code was that you wouldn't want to put unnecessary load
on the Namenode if nothing was needing replication, but a 1 second pause is probably good
enough.

> ReplicationSource uses a backing-off algorithm to sleep for an increasing duration when
an error is encountered in the replication run loop. However, this backing-off is also performed
when there is nothing found to replicate in the HLog.
> Assuming default settings (1 second base retry sleep time, and maximum multiplier of
10), this means that replication takes up to 10 seconds to occur when there is a break of
about 55 seconds without anything being written. As there is no error condition, and there
is apparently no substantial load on the regionserver in this situation, it would probably
make more sense to not back off in non-error situations.
