Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11492) The servers do not honor the tcpNoDelay option
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:14:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11492?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14058652#comment-14058652
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on HBASE-11492:
---------------------------------------

No only client. This is an important finding. Let's do this in 0.94 as well (guarded by the
tcpnodelay option). Recalling now, we have seen some inexplicable slowdown when multiplexing
many client connections over a single TCP connection (for HBase RPCs).

> There is an option to set tcpNoDelay, defaulted to true, but the socket channel is actually
not changed. As a consequence, the server works with nagle enabled. This leads to very degraded
behavior when a single connection is shared between threads. We enter into conflicts with
nagle and tcp delayed ack.

       2880 
> false          2               5               246  (including 200s sleeping)       
       460
> {noformat}
> The latency is multiple by 5 (2880 vs 460) when the connection is shared. This is the
delayed ack kicking in. This can be fixed by really using tcp no delay.
> Any application sharing the tcp connection between threads has the issue.
