Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-8458) Support for batch version of checkAndPut() and checkAndDelete()
Date Wed, 16 Mar 2016 18:13:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-8458?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15197849#comment-15197849

Esther Kundin commented on HBASE-8458:

I actually have the same problem and attempted to fix with a coprocessor.  An observer coprocessor
is unable to do the appropriate locking if writes are happening from different clients.  You
cannot run a checkAndPut from within the coprocessor as by the time you are in the preBatchMutate,
the row is locked for writing and a checkAndPut will be unable to run on the same row.  If
you implement it as an endpoint observer, then it should work, though I haven't tried it,
but it will do a read/write lock on the row, which is a stricter locking than checkAndPut
would do, so it would hurt performance more than a batch checkAndPut which will not block
reads for as long.  So it would seem that a batch checkAndPut would be the best solution.

> The use case is that the user has multiple threads loading hundreds of keys into a hbase
table. Occasionally there are collisions in the keys being uploaded by different threads.
So for correctness, it is required to do checkAndPut() instead of a put(). However, doing
a checkAndPut() rpc for every key update is non optimal. It would be good to have a batch
version of checkAndPut() similar to batch put(). The client can partition the keys on region
> The jira is NOT looking for any type of cross-row locking or multi-row atomicity with
> Batch version of checkAndDelete() is a similar requirement.
