Subject Re: Poor HBase map-reduce scan performance
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2013 01:11:44 GMT
Haven't had a chance to write a JIRA yet, but I thought I'd pop in here
with an update in the meantime.

I tried a number of different approaches to eliminate latency and
"bubbles" in the scan pipeline, and eventually arrived at adding a
streaming scan API to the region server, along with refactoring the scan
interface into an event-drive message receiver interface.  In so doing, I
was able to take scan speed on my cluster from 59,537 records/sec with the
classic scanner to 222,703 records per second with my new scan API.
Needless to say, I'm pleased ;)

More details forthcoming when I get a chance.
