Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-13703) ReplicateContext should not be a member of ReplicationSource
Date Sun, 17 May 2015 20:18:59 GMT

Lars Hofhansl updated HBASE-13703:
    Attachment: 13703.txt

Trivial patch. Just removes the replicateContext members, and creates the object where it
is needed.
Please have a quick look. Is this needed as a member to better allow for custom replication
implementations? (I don't think so, but would be cool if somebody could chime in).

> The ReplicateContext object is created once per ReplicationSource and then reused when
we have something to ship to the sinks.
> This is a misguided optimization. ReplicateContext is very lightweight (definitely compared
to the all the work and copying the ReplicationSource is doing) and, crucially, it prevent
the the entries array from being collected after it was successfully copied to the sink, wasting
potentially a lot of heap.
> The entries array itself holds reference to WAL entries on the heap, that now also cannot
be collected.
