Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8171) Perf issue with multiple client threads trying to prefetch Region Cache from META
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 20:25:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8171?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13609423#comment-13609423

Jean-Daniel Cryans commented on HBASE-8171:
-------------------------------------------

We had a longish discussion about this too here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-6841

My opinion is that pre-fetching is bad for most use cases the way it is implemented and I
prefer to run without it in production.

> HBaseClient maintains a cache of Regions to region locations that gets cleared whenever
the RS that the client talks to is unresponsive.
> This will result in the Client having to talk to META to fetch the region location before
doing the get/put.
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2468 introduces the feature to prewarm the
cache, where the client gets some rows from META to warm the cache.
> This is a costly operation. And,  it looks like all client threads that block on the
regionLockObject, will go in and do the cache warmup; although the cache might have been already
warmed up by an earlier thread. 
> When there is a network issue going on, we see lots of Client threads blocking in locateRegionInMeta.
> The fix would be to check the cache again; before we do the prefetch after grabbing the
lock. Currently, the client threads look in the cache at the begining of the method. But a
lot could have changed while waiting for the regionLockObject.
