Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-17462) Investigate using sliding window for read/write request costs in StochasticLoadBalancer
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2017 19:46:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-17462?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15830482#comment-15830482

Tim Brown commented on HBASE-17462:
-----------------------------------

Thanks for the advice. I previously updated the configs on our testing environment to be 500
to see the effect of balancing based on number of requests instead of number of regions. I
hope to get a patch out soon.

> In the thread, http://search-hadoop.com/m/HBase/YGbbyUZKXWALkX1, Timothy was asking whether
the read/write request costs in StochasticLoadBalancer should be calculated as rates.
> This makes sense since read / write load on region server tends to fluctuate over time.
Using sliding window would reflect more recent trend in read / write load.
> Some factors to consider:
> The data structure used by StochasticLoadBalancer should be concise. The
> number of regions in a cluster can be expected to approach 1 million. We
> cannot afford to store long history of read / write requests in master.
> Efficiency of cost calculation should be high - there're many cost
> functions the balancer goes through, it is expected for each cost function
> to return quickly. Otherwise we would not come up with proper region
> movement plan(s) in time.
