Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-6985) Serve timeranged reads during log split
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2013 19:35:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6985?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13617641#comment-13617641

Nicolas Liochon commented on HBASE-6985:

If we want to do this while keeping consistency, an option it to add set a configurable time
barrier, to make impossible to send a put with an older timestamp than this barrier. This
would be either a fixed one updated by the client, or a mobile one (ex: 15 minutes ago). This
barrier could only be incremented. 

 - on a put, the region server would check than the put does not contain a timestamp older
than the barrier.
 This would allow:  
  - coupled with HBASE-5930 (Periodically flush the Memstore), to do reads directly on the
HFiles without compromising consistency;
  - during recovery (or if recovery is slowed down because some blocks are corrupted) to continue
to read, once the region is allocated again.
As a consequence, we would be able to continue to write and to read when there is a crash.

This is in the same area as HBASE-2357, but simpler as we address only a subset of reads (the
timeranged ones).
