Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15625) Make minimum values configurable and smaller
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 04:58:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15625?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15234491#comment-15234491

Anoop Sam John commented on HBASE-15625:

In another attempt, we want to make use of off heap memory for the bigger parts like BC and
Memstore.  So we want to work with lower heap size only. JFYI.
For BC there can be even 0 size.  For memstore at least 5% memory is what we mandate as per
code as of now.

>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0

> When we start a RS, we check HConstants.HBASE_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_MEMORY_THRESHOLD to make
sure we always keep 20% of the heap for HBase (See below). In the past maximum heap size was
about 20GB, which means 4GB for HBase.
> Today, with huge heaps and GC1, 20% gives a lot to HBase. Like with 80GB heap, it gives
16GB, which I think it not required.
> We need to make HBASE_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_MEMORY_THRESHOLD configurable and lower it's default
value to 10%. It will not make any difference on any HBase configuration but will allow admins
to be more flexible.
> Same thing for the minimum memstore and blockcache sizes.
