Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-13082) Coarsen StoreScanner locks to RegionScanner

Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-13082:
---------------------------------------

bq. In one of the test case - so may this is what I was observing. Anyway will verify once
in linux box also.
Yeah, when FS is local filesystem on windows, the rename while having readers does not work.
If fs is hdfs on top of windows, it works. This particular unit test is using the local file
system, hence the workaround needed, but in production, we are not using ntfs as a local fs,
we are using hdfs on top of ntfs.

> Continuing where HBASE-10015 left of.
> We can avoid locking (and memory fencing) inside StoreScanner by deferring to the lock
already held by the RegionScanner.
> In tests this shows quite a scan improvement and reduced CPU (the fences make the cores
wait for memory fetches).
> There are some drawbacks too:
> * All calls to RegionScanner need to be remain synchronized
> * Implementors of coprocessors need to be diligent in following the locking contract.
For example Phoenix does not lock RegionScanner.nextRaw() and required in the documentation
(not picking on Phoenix, this one is my fault as I told them it's OK)
> * possible starving of flushes and compaction with heavy read load. RegionScanner operations
would keep getting the locks and the flushes/compactions would not be able finalize the set
of files.
> I'll have a patch soon.
