Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-14951) Make hbase.regionserver.maxlogs obsolete
Date Tue, 22 Dec 2015 19:33:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14951?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15068616#comment-15068616

Vladimir Rodionov commented on HBASE-14951:

Can you explain the *2 in the release note Vladimir Rodionov *2 seems a bit arbitrary no?
And if it is to stop blocking because too many WALs, is that going to happen now with these
new limits?

Yes, 2 is arbitrary. We need to make sure that we avoid fully or minimize events when RS has
to flush memstores prematurely only because it reached artificial limit of hbase.regionserver.maxlogs,
this is why I put this  multiplier into equation, this gives us maximum WAL capacity of 2
x RS memstore-size. As for the second question,  we won't have runaway memstore files in any
case, LogRoller will be archiving old WALs periodically (hbase.regionserver.logroll.period
= 1 h, by default). User has three options, either override default  *hbase.regionserver.maxlogs*
or override default  *hbase.regionserver.logroll.period*, or both to control runaway WALs.
I will update Release notes.

an agreement that we should calculate this number in a code but still need to honor user's
