Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7266) [89-fb] Using pread for non-compaction read request
Date Wed, 31 Jul 2013 16:33:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7266?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13725387#comment-13725387

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7266:

In 0.94+ I fixed this by falling back to pread if the lock istream is taken (HBASE-7336).

> There are 2 kinds of read operations in HBase: pread and seek+read.
> Pread, positional read, is stateless and create a new connection between the DFSClient
and DataNode for each operation. While seek+read is to seek to a specific postion and prefetch
blocks from data nodes. The benefit of seek+read is that it will cache the prefetch result
but the downside is it is stateful and needs to synchronized.
> So far, both compaction and scan are using seek+read, which caused some resource contention.
So using the pread for the scan request can avoid the resource contention. In addition, the
region server is able to do the prefetch for the scan request (HBASE-6874) so that it won't
be necessary to let the DFSClient to prefetch the data any more.
> I will run through the scan benchmark (with no block cache) with verify the performance.
