Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13876) Improving performance of HeapMemoryManager
Date Tue, 09 Jun 2015 22:06:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13876?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14579645#comment-14579645

Elliott Clark commented on HBASE-13876:

stepDirection is pretty weirdly named for a boolean.
If you aren't using RegionServerStub delete it.
Is it possible to make TestHeapMemoryManager still only used mock'd HRegionServer?
If possible it would be good to not use HRegionServer, and instead break that out into a different
interface. Or use an already existing interface.
Needs tests for the new cases.

> I am trying to improve the performance of DefaultHeapMemoryTuner by introducing some
more checks. The current checks under which the DefaultHeapMemoryTuner works are very rare
so I am trying to weaken these checks to improve its performance.
> Check current memstore size and current block cache size. If we are using less than 50%
of currently available block cache size  we say block cache is sufficient and same for memstore.
This check will be very effective when server is either load heavy or write heavy. Earlier
version just waited to for number of evictions / number of flushes to be zero which is very
rare to happen.
> Otherwise based on percent change in number of cache misses and number of flushes we
increase / decrease memory provided for caching / memstore. After doing so, on next call of
HeapMemoryTuner we verify that last change has indeed decreased number of evictions / flush
( combined). I am doing this analysis by comparing percent change (which is basically nothing
but normalized derivative) of number of evictions and number of flushes during last two periods.
The main motive for doing this was that if we have random reads then even after increasing
block cache we wont be able to decrease number of cache misses and eventually we will not
waste memory on block caches.
