Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8925) [replication] Allow lazy RS to help overwhelmed RS
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2013 23:17:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8925?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13706422#comment-13706422

Jean-Daniel Cryans commented on HBASE-8925:

Yeah that's a good problem I also had in the past. Some tables were uber write intensive (ICV)
and if too many regions gathered on one RS it would start lagging, then I'd move all of them
by hand elsewhere. Having per-region metrics in 0.94 really helped with that.

Could we also consider having the same region server replication in multiple thread? Would
that be easier than doing moving chunks of queues around?

> Sometimes in usual course of things, one of the regionservers gets waaaaay behind replicating
its queue; easily build-ups of 40-50 files over just a day (running YCSB at the same time).
However, this is just for a single RS - others don't have anything to replicate. We can manually
get around this by moving the region load away from the overloaded server (and get smarter
about this by writing our own load balancer). However, moving regions around just to catch
up the replication seems a bit heavyweight.

> it seems like we can already get out-of-order updates for a table on the target cluster.
Given this is already the behavior (though not common), we could allow a 'lazy' RS to have
a secondary log to replicate when it has time. 
> This adds a bit more complexity around who owns which log for replication, but could
dramatically increase throughput as you aren't bottle-necked by the single slow host.
