Subject [jira] [Updated] (HBASE-13876) Improving performance of HeapMemoryManager
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2015 06:52:01 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13876?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Abhilash updated HBASE-13876:
-----------------------------
    Description: 
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. For say 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 for number of evictions / number of flushes to be zero which are
very rare.
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 either of which
it was expected to do. We also check that it does not make the other (evictions / flush) increase
much. 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 we will be having a lot
of cache misses. But even after increasing block cache we wont be able to decrease number
of cache misses and we will revert back and eventually we will not waste memory on block caches.
This will also help us ignore random short term spikes in reads / writes. I have also tried
to take care not to tune memory if do do not have enough hints as unnecessary tuning my slow
down the system.
