Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-12848) Utilize Flash storage for WAL
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 19:12:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-12848?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14621095#comment-14621095

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-12848:

bq. I've been working through actually using this feature and the more I do so the more convinced
I am that this should all be a configuration walkthrough in the ref guide coupled with enhancement
requests to the HDFS project. (as opposed to code in HBase as we're currently doing.)

This is true for WALs. This is not true for the parent issue, which also considers migration
of HFiles for placement of read-mostly workloads on high IOPS devices based on HBase level
statistics. That would still mostly be HDFS enhancement requests, but an additional bit of
HBase level code for toggling storage device class policy on column family paths.

> One way to improve data ingestion rate is to make use of Flash storage.
> HDFS is doing the heavy lifting - see HDFS-7228.
> We assume an environment where:
> 1. Some servers have a mix of flash, e.g. 2 flash drives and 4 traditional drives.
> 2. Some servers have all traditional storage.
> 3. RegionServers are deployed on both profiles within one HBase cluster.
> This JIRA allows WAL to be managed on flash in a mixed-profile environment.
