Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-10926) Use global procedure to flush table memstore cache
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 23:17:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10926?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13983717#comment-13983717

Matteo Bertozzi commented on HBASE-10926:

The behavior change more is related to the failure case, if a RS is not-responding with the
procedure you fail the flush, while with the old method some of them got flushed.

for where to place the files, i think procedures/flush is ok.
At least we know that every component is in a single place, the snapshots have the snapshot
and rs division but which is conceptually more correct, but more painful when you try to read
the code the first time.

For the testing I think you should add the case where a RS is not responding. I guess you
can mock it.

For the preFlush() you are correct. You have to add the call to the coprocessor on the master

I'm looking at the code in more details, and I think there is something wrong with the MasterFlushTableProcedureManager.
execProcedure() starts by resetting the done and call the flush procedure, but there is nothing
that prevent multiple calls of flush on the same table or different table.
This means, that if you call a second flush() while the other is running your "done" flag
is not describing what you expect and so on.

> Currently, user can trigger table flush through hbase shell or HBaseAdmin API.  To flush
the table cache, each region server hosting the regions is contacted and flushed sequentially,
which is less efficient.
> In HBase snapshot global procedure is used to coordinate and flush the regions in a distributed
> Let's provide a distributed table flush for general use.
