Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-15935) Have a separate Walker task running concurrently with Generator
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2016 17:59:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15935?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15316885#comment-15316885

Joseph commented on HBASE-15935:

In general, the idea is to keep track of the linked-list loops that have been fully generated
and flushed inside of a HBase Table, "Flushed Table". When a circular linked list enters the
"Flushed Table" we can pass the circular linked list into a Walker job that will begin to
validate that circular linked list concurrently with Generation and/or Verify.

As of now I am considering a few possibilities for how this is going to be implemented:

1. Have Walk-Generation be a special mode inside of Loop. This will provide us a little more
flexibility in communicating between the Generation-Verify cycle and the Walk (eg: we could
pause or terminate Walker at certain times depending on whether Generation or Verification
is running). This is the version I have currently implemented, but my usage of Threads just
seems a little out of place in the IntegrationTestBigLinkedList code.
2. Modify Walker to have a special option, where it will only grab new nodes from the "Flushed
3. Another interesting option that I found was the concurrency option in the master GoraCI
project that would use a similar idea of "Flushed Table" to run Verifications concurrently
with Generation. I could also add this in as an optional Loop mode. 
See: https://github.com/keith-turner/goraci/commit/2bae337

Do you guys have any suggestions or comments on which of these approaches I should take?
