             Summary: Removing ThreadLocal of PrefetchedHeader in HFileBlock.FSReaderV2 make
higher perforamce of scan
                 Key: HBASE-10676
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10676
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.98.0
            Reporter: zhaojianbo

PrefetchedHeader variable in HFileBlock.FSReaderV2 is used for avoiding backward seek operation
as the comment said:
we will not incur a backward seek operation if we have already read this block's header as
part of the previous read's look-ahead. And we also want to skip reading the header again
if it has already been read.
But that is not the case. In the code of 0.98, prefetchedHeader is threadlocal for one storefile
reader, and in the RegionScanner lifecycle´╝îdifferent rpc handlers will serve scan requests
of the same scanner. Even though one handler of previous scan call prefetched the next block
header, the other handlers of current scan call will still trigger a backward seek operation.
The process is like this:
# rs handler1 serves the scan call, reads block1 and prefetches the header of block2
# rs handler2 serves the same scanner's next scan call, because rs handler2 doesn't know the
header of block2 already prefetched by rs handler1, triggers a backward seek and reads block2,
and prefetches the header of block3.

It is not the sequential read. So I think that the threadlocal is useless, and should be abandoned.
I did the work, and evaluated the performance of one client, two client and four client scanning
the same region with one storefile.  The test environment is
# A hdfs cluster with a namenode, a secondary namenode , a datanode in a machine
# A hbase cluster with a zk, a master, a regionserver in the same machine
# clients are also in the same machine.
So all the data is local. The storefile is about 22.7GB, 18995949 kvs. Caching is set 1000.
With the improvement, the client total scan time decreases 21% for the one client case, 11%
for the two clients case. But the four clients case is almost the same. The details tests'
data is the following:
