Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7404) Bucket Cache:A solution about CMS,Heap Fragment and Big Cache on HBASE
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 04:35:31 GMT

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

[~vrodionov] You are right for point request (GETs). For scans, however, the performance penalty
is substantial (less that 1/2 the scan performance when I measured last, but I can check again).

> 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
