Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-1197) IPC of large cells should transfer in chunks not via naive full copy
Date Tue, 13 May 2014 22:01:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1197?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13996950#comment-13996950

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-1197:

This ties into blob store discussions which would enable a lot of more interesting use cases
for hbase. However, it is an architectural level work that can sit on top of hbase as well,
like what Microsoft did in http://sigops.org/sosp/sosp11/current/2011-Cascais/printable/11-calder.pdf

Even if we are able to store large cells in hfiles, the write amplification from compactions
would be a big problem. We would like to use the block storage in hdfs directly to store large
objects. Andrew, you had a coprocessor + custom compactions based solution for this, no?

IPC should send large cell content in chunks instead of as one large naive copy.
