Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10263) make LruBlockCache single/multi/in-memory ratio user-configurable and provide preemptive mode for in-memory type block
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2014 02:19:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10263?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13862153#comment-13862153

Feng Honghua commented on HBASE-10263:

bq.I would suggest that this behavior be ON by default in a major release of hbase (0.98 if
@apurtell is amenable or 1.0.0 if not); to me, the way this patch is more the 'expected' behavior.
==> the single/multi/memory ratio by default is the same as before(without any tweak):
25%:50%:25%, but user can change them by setting the new configurations, the 'inMemoryForceMode'(preemptive
mode for in-memory blocks) is by default OFF, you want to turn 'inMemoryForceMode' ON? hmmm.
what about we firstly make it conservative by keeping it OFF by default, and turn it on if
we eventually found most of our users tweak it on for their real use :-)
    At least we now provide users a new option to control how 'in-memory' cached blocks mean
and behave, and when it's off we enable users to configure the single/multi/memory ratios.

> currently the single/multi/in-memory ratio in LruBlockCache is hardcoded 1:2:1, which
can lead to somewhat counter-intuition behavior for some user scenario where in-memory table's
read performance is much worse than ordinary table when two tables' data size is almost equal
and larger than regionserver's cache size (we ever did some such experiment and verified that
in-memory table random read performance is two times worse than ordinary table).
> this patch fixes above issue and provides:
> 1. make single/multi/in-memory ratio user-configurable
> 2. provide a configurable switch which can make in-memory block preemptive, by preemptive
means when this switch is on in-memory block can kick out any ordinary block to make room
until no ordinary block, when this switch is off (by default) the behavior is the same as
previous, using single/multi/in-memory ratio to determine evicting.
> by default, above two changes are both off and the behavior keeps the same as before
applying this patch. it's client/user's choice to determine whether or which behavior to use
by enabling one of these two enhancements.
