Subject RE: HBase read performance
Date Sat, 11 Oct 2014 02:59:39 GMT

I am still prototyping, hence the small instance. I thought XX:MaxDirectMemorySize is subset
of Xmx, so I thought the total is 6GB. You are saying they are added. If so, that's not good
for performance as the JVM will swap. However, this can't be the reason for the bug. 

For now, I guess the only option is to use LruBlockCache. However, I expect it to suffer
from significant GC, as I churn memory fast because I want to cache blocks on writes and I
do significant writing.
