Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-18517) limit max log message width in log4j
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2017 17:17:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-18517?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16120287#comment-16120287

Josh Elser commented on HBASE-18517:
------------------------------------

bq.  Sets a log length max of 1k. 

Pulling up the log4j docs, I think this is a limit of 1000 _characters_, right? Just wanted
to dbl check that I'm reading this correctly.

> We had two cases now in our prod / pilot setups which is leading to humongous log lines
in RegionServer logs. 
> In first case, one of the phoenix user had constructed a query with a really large list
of Id filters (61 MB) that translated into HBase scan that was running slow which lead to
responseTooSlow messages in the logs with the entire filter list being printed in the logs,
example
> ipc.RpcServer - (responseTooSlow): {"call":"Scan(org.apache.hadoop.hbase.protobuf.generated.ClientProtos$ScanRequest)","starttimems":1501457864417,"responsesize":11,"method":"Scan","param":"region
{ type: REGION_NAME value:  ..... org.apache.hadoop.hbase.filter.FirstKeyOnlyFilter\\022\351\\200\\036\\n(org.apache.phoenix.filter.SkipScanFilter
... <a really long filter list leading to single log lines of size 61MB> ... 
> There was another case where a use case had created a table with really large key/region
names. This was causing humongous log lines for flush and compaction on these regions filling
up the RS logs
> These large logs usually cause issues with disk I/O load, loading the splunk servers,
even machine perf degradations. With 61 MB log lines basic log processing commands like vim,
scrolling the logs, wc -l , etc were getting stuck. High GC activity was also noted on this
cluster although not 100% sure if it was related to above issue. 
> We should consider limiting the message size in logs which can be easily done by adding
a maximum width format modifier on the message conversion character in log4j.properties
> log4j.appender.console.layout.ConversionPattern=...: %m%n
> to 
> log4j.appender.console.layout.ConversionPattern=...: %.10000m%n
