Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-7336) HFileBlock.readAtOffset does not work well with multiple threads
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2014 22:03:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-7336?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14050778#comment-14050778

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-7336:
--------------------------------------

DFSInputStream *does* override this method (checked Hadoop-trunk). The overridden method directly
calculates the offset without locking as it should. All is good on this front.

> HBase grinds to a halt when many threads scan along the same set of blocks and neither
read short circuit is nor block caching is enabled for the dfs client ... disabling the block
cache makes sense on very large scans.
> It turns out that synchronizing in istream in HFileBlock.readAtOffset is the culprit.
