Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14757) Reduce allocation pressure imposed by HFile block processing
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2015 03:18:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14757?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14988808#comment-14988808

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-14757:

For HFileBlock read buffers: These allocations are expected. This is where block data lands.
These allocations are carried through into the block cache when using the LRUBlockCache and
are retained potentially for a very long time. When using BucketCache, the on-disk block data
isn't needed after the IO engine serializes it off-heap or to SSD. We could reuse allocations
for the latter case but not the former. Needs investigation. 

Meanwhile, for block encoding / seeker state, I think these are all short lived allocations.
So, a strawman: Round up byte[] allocation requests here to the nearest power of 2. Keep object
caches for powers of 2 over a common range. Serve requests from the appropriate free list
where available. Prune free lists using LRU.

> Using Flight Recorder to look at the object allocation profiles of regionservers processing
the various YCSB workloads when block encoding is enabled (specifically, FAST_DIFF, but this
applies to any), we can see:
> - Allocations of byte[] for block encoding contribute 40-70% of all allocation pressure
in TLABs. 
> - Of that subset of allocation pressure, ~50-70% is byte[] for SeekerState
> - Greater than 99% of allocation of byte[] outside of TLABs are for read buffers for
> This issue is for investigation of strategy for and impact of reducing that allocation
pressure. Reducing allocation pressure reduces demand for GC, which reduces GC activity overall,
which reduces a source of system latency.
