Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-9291) Enable client to setAttribute that is sent once to each region server

The use case where the above are necessary in Phoenix include:
1) Hash joins, where the results of the smaller side of a join scan are packaged up and sent
to each region server, and
2) Secondary indexing, where the metadata of knowing a) which column family/column qualifier
pairs and b) which part of the row key contributes to which indexes are sent to each region
server that will process a batched put.
[...]
For both these cases, it'd be a cache at the RegionServer level. All the regions would get
this information from this cache.

I'm wondering if any HBase changes are needed. Can you create an Endpoint, call it first to
transmit the large data along with a "join ID", and then pass the join ID only on the operationAttribute,
that your Observer(s) would look for, and finally manage that RegionServer level cache with
a singleton for that purpose? Now as a consequence there would be the additional round trip
for the Exec call, but given the data you want to send over and cache for many additional
invocations is large, the overhead would be small.

> Currently a Scan and Mutation allow the client to set its own attributes that get passed
through the RPC layer and are accessible from a coprocessor. This is very handy, but breaks
down if the amount of information is large, since this information ends up being sent again
and again to every region. Clients can work around this with an endpoint "pre" and "post"
coprocessor invocation that:
> 1) sends the information and caches it on the region server in the "pre" invocation
> 2) invokes the Scan or sends the batch of Mutations, and then
> 3) removes it in the "post" invocation.
> In this case, the client is forced to identify all region servers (ideally, all region
servers that will be involved in the Scan/Mutation), make extra RPC calls, manage the caching
of the information on the region server, age-out the information (in case the client dies
before step (3) that clears the cached information), and must deal with the possibility of
a split occurring while this operation is in-progress.
> Instead, it'd be much better if an attribute could be identified as a "region server"
attribute in OperationWithAttributes and the HBase RPC layer would take care of doing the
above.
> The use case where the above are necessary in Phoenix include:
> 1) Hash joins, where the results of the smaller side of a join scan are packaged up and
sent to each region server, and
> 2) Secondary indexing, where the metadata of knowing a) which column family/column qualifier
pairs and b) which part of the row key contributes to which indexes are sent to each region
server that will process a batched put.
