Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15338) Add a option to disable the data block cache for testing the performance of underlying file system
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2016 16:15:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15338?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15169245#comment-15169245

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-15338:

For data block cache on write, we have a global config.  In case of cache on read no global
config.  There is no issue in adding one.  +1 on that.

+           && family.isBlockCacheEnabled(),

For other configs we have || condition btw global one and family specific.  Why this is different?
  There was one issue with this discussion. I forgot which issue and whether we have closed
that or not.

> When testing and comparing the performance of different file systems(HDFS, Azure blob
storage, AWS S3 and so on) for HBase, it's better to avoid the affect of the HBase BlockCache
and get the actually random read latency when data block is read from underlying file system.
(Usually, the index block and meta block should be cached in memory in the testing).
> So we add a option in CacheConfig to disable the data block cache.
> Suggestions are welcomed~ Thanks
