Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10501) Make IncreasingToUpperBoundRegionSplitPolicy configurable
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2014 18:16:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10501?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13904342#comment-13904342

stack commented on HBASE-10501:

What if someone has configuration for when to split already?  Will it be overridden or preserved?

> During some (admittedly artificial) load testing we found a large amount split activity,
which we tracked down the IncreasingToUpperBoundRegionSplitPolicy.
> The current logic is this (from the comments):
> "regions that are on this server that all are of the same table, squared, times the region
flush size OR the maximum region split size, whichever is smaller"
> So with a flush size of 128mb and max file size of 20gb, we'd need 13 region of the same
table on an RS to reach the max size.
> With 10gb file sized it is still 9 regions of the same table.
> Considering that the number of regions that an RS can carry is limited and there might
be multiple tables, this should be more configurable.
> I think the squaring is smart and we do not need to change it.
> We could
> * Make the start size configurable and default it to the flush size
> * Add multiplier for the initial size, i.e. start with n * flushSize
> * Also change the default to start with 2*flush size
> Of course one can override the default split policy, but these seem like simple tweaks.
> Or we could instead set the goal of how many regions of the same table would need to
be present in order to reach the max size. In that case we'd start with maxSize/goal^2. So
if max size is 20gb and the goal is three we'd start with 20g/9 = 2.2g for the initial region
> [~stack], I'm especially interested in your opinion.
