> There are two issues:
> 1) A confusion between the socket timeout and the call timeout
> Socket timeouts should be minimal: a default like 20 seconds, that could be lowered to
single digits timeouts for some apps: if we can not write to the socket in 10 second, we have
an issue. This is different from the total duration (send query + do query + receive query),
that can be longer, as it can include remotes calls on the server and so on. Today, we have
a single value, it does not allow us to have low socket read timeouts.
> 2) The timeout can be different between the calls. Typically, if the total time, retries
included is 60 seconds but failed after 2 seconds, then the remaining is 58s. HBase does this
today, but by hacking with a thread local storage variable. It's a hack (it should have been
a parameter of the methods, the TLS allowed to bypass all the layers. May be protobuf makes
this complicated, to be confirmed), but as well it does not really work, because we can have
multithreading issues (we use the updated rpc timeout of someone else, or we create a new
BlockingRpcChannelImplementation with a random default timeout).
> Ideally, we could send the call timeout to the server as well: it will be able to dismiss
alone the calls that it received but git stick in the request queue or in the internal retries
(on hdfs for example).
> This will make the system more reactive to failure.
> I think we can solve this now, especially after 10525. The main issue is to something
that fits well with protobuf...
> Then it should be easy to have a pool of thread for writers and readers, w/o a single
thread per region server as today.
