Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8892) should pick the files as older as possible also while hasReferences
Date Mon, 08 Jul 2013 07:17:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8892?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13701836#comment-13701836

ramkrishna.s.vasudevan commented on HBASE-8892:

I forgot the issue related to this, but if your referecne file count increases it was suggested
that we need control our write throughput so that the reference files are compacted.
I can get you the JIRA that talks about this.

> Currently, while hasReferences for compactSelection, and if compactSelection.getFilesToCompact()
has more than maxFilesToCompact files, we clear the files from beginning, it's different with
the normal minor compaction ratio based policy, which tries to do compactSelection from older
to newer ones as possible.

>         // all files included in this compaction, up to max
>         int pastMax = compactSelection.getFilesToCompact().size() - this.maxFilesToCompact;
>         compactSelection.getFilesToCompact().subList(0, pastMax).clear();
> {code}
> It makes the beginning files more difficult to be picked up in future's minor compaction
> IMHO, it should be like this:
> {code}
>         compactSelection.getFilesToCompact()
>             .subList(this.maxFilesToCompact, compactSelection.getFilesToCompact().size())
>             .clear();
> {code}
> It's not a big issue, since occurs while hasReferences returns true only.
