Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-4147) StoreFile query usage report
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 18:18:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-4147?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

stack updated HBASE-4147:

         Priority: Major  (was: Critical)
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 0.96.0)

This turned into a (useful) discussion.  [~eclark] Can you take a look and note what in 0.96
metrics2 might help answering the questions Doug poses above?  We also have a trace mechanism
committed but again it would take some work to get it to the level Doug is asking for in the

It would seem that this issue should become two issues now: one to improve the trace so can
go down to the per-storefile level and another to add to metrics so can do at the storefile
emissions (if possible).

Meantime, marking this as non-critical and moving out of 0.96 while it is w/o a sponsor.

> Detailed information on what HBase is doing in terms of reads is hard to come by.
> What would be useful is to have a periodic StoreFile query report.  Specifically, this
could run on a configured interval (e.g., every 30 seconds, 60 seconds) and dump the output
to the log files.
> This would have all StoreFiles accessed during the reporting period (and with the Path
we would also know region, CF, and table), # of times the StoreFile was accessed, the size
of the StoreFile, and the total time (ms) spent processing that StoreFile.
> Even this level of summary would be useful to detect a which tables & CFs are being
accessed the most, and including the StoreFile would provide insight into relative "uncompaction"
(i.e., lots of StoreFiles).
> I think the log-output, as opposed to UI, is an important facet with this.  I'm assuming
that users will slice and dice this data on their own so I think we should skip any kind of
admin view for now (i.e., new JSPs, new APIs to expose this data).  Just getting this to log-file
would be a big improvement.
> Will this have a non-zero performance impact?  Yes.  Hopefully small, but yes it will.
 However, flying a plane without any instrumentation isn't fun.  :-)
