Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7404) Bucket Cache:A solution about CMS,Heap Fragment and Big Cache on HBASE
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 04:31:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7404?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13878249#comment-13878249

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7404:
--------------------------------------

I'm not opposed backporting this if there is interest. I'm wrestling with large memory machines
myself currently. This is in 0.96 and later already; and this is almost completely new code
with very little risk to existing functionality.

[~xieliang007], is your patch the same as the posted here by [~davelatham]? If not, mind add
refreshed patch?
If you had some performance numbers that would be great too.

I'd also be curious how this fares performance wise against just using the OS buffer cache.
I.e. how does serialization from the OS cache compare the serialization from the bucket cache.
And - to preempt any comments to that extend - I realize that the bucket cache provides more
flexibility than the OS buffer cache, which indiscriminately caches blocks (unless we use
fadvise hints, etc)

> First, thanks @neil from Fusion-IO share the source code.
> 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
