Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8299) ExploringCompactionPolicy can get stuck in rare cases.
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2013 21:26:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8299?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13627133#comment-13627133

Sergey Shelukhin commented on HBASE-8299:
-----------------------------------------

The compaction is not only requested when it's necessary. There's periodic compaction checker,
and there's compaction when region is opened. needsCompaction also doesn't check ratio iirc,
so number of files would be enough to call compaction selection. It doesn't mean there must
be selection. In such cases with one large file and a few new memstore flush files that are
not yet by themselves within the ratio, there must be no compaction.
If something calls selection non-stop when there's no reasonable selection to be made it's
a different problem.

get stuck.
