Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (HBASE-17565) StochasticLoadBalancer may incorrectly skip balancing due to skewed multiplier sum

--------------------------------------------------------

bq. This is not need to change to 1.01f .

With certain cluster state, total == sumMultiplier which results in (total / sumMultiplier)
< minCostNeedBalance to be false, leading to testNeedBalance() failure.
Since the underlying bug in needsBalance() is fixed, the above change is needed for test to
pass.

bq. when the cost is zero, then we don't need consider the multiplier

As I commented above, we should consider the aggregate effect of cost multiplied by multiplier,
not just the cost itself.

bq. we should make the default multiplier as a small value?

The large multiplier for read replica was obtained through trial and error when developing
read replica feature.
I think we should leave it as is.

> I was investigating why a 6 node cluster kept skipping balancing requests.
> Here were the region counts on the servers:
> 449, 448, 447, 449, 453, 0

balancer.StochasticLoadBalancer: Skipping load balancing because balanced cluster; total cost
is 127.0171157050385, sum multiplier is 111087.0 min cost which need balance is 0.05
> {code}
> The big multiplier sum caught my eyes. Here was what additional debug logging showed:

> {code}
> Note however, that no table in the cluster used read replica.
> I can think of two ways of fixing this situation:
> 1. If there is no read replica in the cluster, ignore the multipliers for the above two
functions.
> 2. When cost() returned by the CostFunction is 0 (or very very close to 0.0), ignore
the multiplier.
