Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14355) Scan different TimeRange for each column family
Date Mon, 26 Oct 2015 20:47:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14355?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14975009#comment-14975009

stack commented on HBASE-14355:
-------------------------------

Patch looks good.  Needs fat release note.  Seems harmless enough. Could be backported. You
fellows need it backported?

One question. It is interesting that we have been able to get away with StoreFileScanner not
having to know what Store it belongs to... until this patch that is.  Would the patch be less
invasive if we passed the Store to shouldUseScanner as an argument rather than into StoreFileScanner
on construction?  Change would be fine given these are private interfaces.  What you think
[~churromorales]?

> At present the Scan API supports only table level time range. We have specific use cases
that will benefit from per column family time range. (See background discussion at https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/hbase-user/201508.mbox/%3CCAA4mzom00ef5eoXStK0HEtxebY8mQSs61GBVGttgpASpmhQHaw@mail.gmail.com%3E)
> There are a couple of choices that would be good to validate.  First - how to update
the Scan API to support family and table level updates.  One proposal would be to add Scan.setTimeRange(byte
family, long minTime, long maxTime), then store it in a Map<byte[], TimeRange>.  When
executing the scan, if a family has a specified TimeRange, then use it, otherwise fall back
to using the table level TimeRange.  Clients using the new API against old region servers
would not get the families correctly filterd.  Old clients sending scans to new region servers
would work correctly.
> The other question is how to get StoreFileScanner.shouldUseScanner to match up the proper
family and time range.  It has the Scan available but doesn't currently have available which
family it is a part of.  One option would be to try to pass down the column family in each
constructor path.  Another would be to instead alter shouldUseScanner to pass down the specific
TimeRange to use (similar to how it currently passes down the columns to use which also appears
to be a workaround for not having the family available).
