Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10413) Tablesplit.getLength returns 0

Lukas Nalezenec commented on HBASE-10413:
-----------------------------------------

I made big changes in code.
You can check it and discus it in https://github.com/apache/hbase/pull/8/files .

 I have to write unit tests before making the patch.

- I need help with unit test. Is there some simple unit test helper/utility i can use ? I
need to create table with some regions and then work with their sizes. It should be local,
there should be some level of abstraction. 

- I have added configuration option for disabling this feature:
  Is there some policy about new configuration options ? 
  Should i move the configuration key constant to some place ? 
  Should be the feature disabled or enabled by default ?

- Computation of region sizes might be slow. We might need some parallelization.

from mail:
+  public void setLength(long length) {
This method in TableSplit can be package private.

I think that lot of people uses Table Split in their custom Input format. IMHO this method
should be part of API.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Client, mapreduce

> InputSplits should be sorted by length but TableSplit does not contain real getLength
implementation:
>   @Override
>   public long getLength() {
>     // Not clear how to obtain this... seems to be used only for sorting splits
>     return 0;
>   }
> This is causing us problem with scheduling - we have got jobs that are supposed to finish
in limited time but they get often stuck in last mapper working on large region.
> Can we implement this method ? 
> What is the best way ?
> We were thinking about estimating size by size of files on HDFS.
> We would like to get Scanner from TableSplit, use startRow, stopRow and column families
to get corresponding region than computing size of HDFS for given region and column family.

> Update:
> This ticket was about production issue - I talked with guy who worked on this and he
said our production issue was probably not directly caused by getLength() returning 0.
