Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7336) HFileBlock.readAtOffset does not work well with multiple threads
Date Wed, 12 Dec 2012 07:03:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7336?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13529682#comment-13529682
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7336:
--------------------------------------

tryLock without a timeout returns immediately. I think in this case it should, waiting here
would potentially wait (at least a threads context switch) on each single next or get request.

I think this issue would be most prominent in long scans, where the scans typically do not
want to mess up the block cache.

Multiple readers is probably the right solution. How many, though? And I am not sure how this
would interact with the block cache (would probably be OK).

> HBase grinds to a halt when many threads scan along the same set of blocks and neither
read short circuit is nor block caching is enabled for the dfs client ... disabling the block
cache makes sense on very large scans.
> It turns out that synchronizing in istream in HFileBlock.readAtOffset is the culprit.
