Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13082) Coarsen StoreScanner locks to RegionScanner
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2015 19:45:39 GMT

stack commented on HBASE-13082:
-------------------------------

bq. The only reason why I am still hesitant on this one is that we'll now be forced to keep
the RegionScanner lock in the future. 

+1. Commit. Go for it. Undoing the locks is a good thing (tm). It cleans up old lazy thinking
and shows the way forward.

That the lock is too coarse, we can work on later especially after flush-by-store gets done;
then flush and compaction can be made purely Store-scoped.

> Continuing where HBASE-10015 left of.
> We can avoid locking (and memory fencing) inside StoreScanner by deferring to the lock
already held by the RegionScanner.
> In tests this shows quite a scan improvement and reduced CPU (the fences make the cores
wait for memory fetches).
> There are some drawbacks too:
> * All calls to RegionScanner need to be remain synchronized
> * Implementors of coprocessors need to be diligent in following the locking contract.
For example Phoenix does not lock RegionScanner.nextRaw() and required in the documentation
(not picking on Phoenix, this one is my fault as I told them it's OK)
> * possible starving of flushes and compaction with heavy read load. RegionScanner operations
would keep getting the locks and the flushes/compactions would not be able finalize the set
of files.
> I'll have a patch soon.
