Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7404) Bucket Cache:A solution about CMS,Heap Fragment and Big Cache on HBASE

chunhui shen commented on HBASE-7404:
-------------------------------------

[~jmspaggi]
If you take it as a main memory block cache, it is used to decrease CMS and heap fragment
by GC rather than improve the performance. 
So it is not appropriate for the scenario where the block cache hit ratio is high (e.g. >=
80%). 
In other scenarios, its performance should be near with or a little higher than the LruBlockCache's.

> Usage:
> 1.Use bucket cache as main memory cache, configured as the following:
> –"hbase.bucketcache.ioengine" "heap"
> –"hbase.bucketcache.size" 0.4 (size for bucket cache, 0.4 is a percentage of max heap
size)
> 2.Use bucket cache as a secondary cache, configured as the following:
> –"hbase.bucketcache.ioengine" "file:/disk1/hbase/cache.data"(The file path where to
store the block data)
> –"hbase.bucketcache.size" 1024 (size for bucket cache, unit is MB, so 1024 means 1GB)
> –"hbase.bucketcache.combinedcache.enabled" false (default value being true)
> See more configurations from org.apache.hadoop.hbase.io.hfile.CacheConfig and org.apache.hadoop.hbase.io.hfile.bucket.BucketCache
> What's Bucket Cache? 
> It could greatly decrease CMS and heap fragment by GC
> It support a large cache space for High Read Performance by using high speed disk like
Fusion-io
> 1.An implementation of block cache like LruBlockCache
> 2.Self manage blocks' storage position through Bucket Allocator
> 3.The cached blocks could be stored in the memory or file system
> 4.Bucket Cache could be used as a mainly block cache(see CombinedBlockCache), combined
with LruBlockCache to decrease CMS and fragment by GC.
> 5.BucketCache also could be used as a secondary cache(e.g. using Fusionio to store block)
to enlarge cache space
> How about SlabCache?
> We have studied and test SlabCache first, but the result is bad, because:
> 1.SlabCache use SingleSizeCache, its use ratio of memory is low because kinds of block
size, especially using DataBlockEncoding
> 2.SlabCache is uesd in DoubleBlockCache, block is cached both in SlabCache and LruBlockCache,
put the block to LruBlockCache again if hit in SlabCache , it causes CMS and heap fragment
don't get any better
> 3.Direct heap performance is not good as heap, and maybe cause OOM, so we recommend using
"heap" engine
