Subject Re: what's the typical scan latency?
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 11:24:51 GMT
What's your blockCacheHitCachingRatio ? It would tell you about the ratio
of scans requested from cache (default) to the scans actually served from
the block cache. You can get that from the RS web ui. What you are seeing
can almost map to anything, for example: is scanner caching (client side)
enabled ? if so, how many rows are cached (how many rows returned by the
scanner.next RPC call) ? what's your HFile block size, block cache % of
total RS heap, max number of RPCs per RS for client connections,
tcpnodelay, your network topology and jitter, number of NICs. Are you using
HTableInterface connection pool ? HBase client is synchronous, so how do
achieve concurrency ?  What about your percentiles ? is 5ms the mean ?
median ? is 20ms only in the 99% percentile, etc. etc. etc ... I am far
from considering my self an expert on the general topic of HBase, so take
my tips with a pinch of salt - these are just factors I've considered when
trying to optimize my read latency. Hope that helps.
