Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-17565) StochasticLoadBalancer may incorrectly skip balancing due to skewed multiplier sum
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2017 04:30:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-17565?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15852581#comment-15852581
] 

Ted Yu commented on HBASE-17565:
--------------------------------

bq. This only effect when there are a very very big multiplier......

Big multiplier does exist. We need to consider the aggregate effect.

bq. Why we need a so big default multiplier for read replica?

The background is that when any two replicas among primary, secondary and tertiary replicas
are on the same server, we lose benefit of read replica when this server goes down. See the
javadoc for RegionReplicaHostCostFunction :
{code}
   * A cost function for region replicas. We give a very high cost to hosting
   * replicas of the same region in the same host. We do not prevent the case
   * though, since if numReplicas > numRegionServers, we still want to keep the
   * replica open.

> 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

> 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.
