Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11927) Use Native Hadoop Library for HFile checksum
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 22:29:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-11927?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14540905#comment-14540905

Apekshit Sharma commented on HBASE-11927:

There were a couple of options. NHL(native hadoop library) and [Circe|https://github.com/trevorr/circe]
We decided to go with NHL, despite the fact that it introduces dependency on hadoop, because
hfile checksum requires interface which take two streams, data and checksums, and verifies/calculates
checksums for chunks of a fixed size data. NHL already supports it while Circe doesn't. (More
differences in this [doc|https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NCB3h8YU86mGFjK_uWA7KMDmu288nrCZvwRTr30zX-s/edit]

We switched from CRC32 as default to CRC32C because:
- crc32c has better error detection properties
- crc32c has advantage of dedicated instruction on newer Intel processors
(couldn't profile this case because the machines i used for testing weren't new enough, ie
didn't support [sse4.2|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE4#SSE4.2] instructions)

Profiling was done using lightweight-java-profiler.

> Up in hadoop they have this change. Let me publish some graphs to show that it makes
a difference (CRC is a massive amount of our CPU usage in my profiling of an upload because
of compacting, flushing, etc.).  We should also make use of native CRCings -- especially the
2.6 HDFS-6865 and ilk -- in hbase but that is another issue for now.
