Subject Re: HBase GET operation max row size - partial results
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2017 06:41:34 GMT
AFAIK there's no max result size or partial result for get request. If we
add such feature in future, we will add release note in JIRA.
(Actually we have implemented such limit in our customized version and it
requires CP to correctly handle it, we may upstream the feature later)

Some more detailed information at code level:

When saying "get uses scan internally", we mean it reuse the scan logic in
HRegion class. But at the rpc service level in RSRpcServices, there're two
different methods (get and scan) for these two kinds of requests, and
currently you'll only find below max result size limit in scan code path:


    long maxResultSize;

    if (scanner.getMaxResultSize() > 0) {

      maxResultSize = Math.min(scanner.getMaxResultSize(),

    } else {

      maxResultSize = maxQuotaResultSize;



        ScannerContext.Builder contextBuilder = ScannerContext.newBuilder(

        // maxResultSize - either we can reach this much size for all
cells(being read) data or sum

        // of heap size occupied by cells(being read). Cell data means its
key and value parts.

        contextBuilder.setSizeLimit(sizeScope, maxResultSize, maxResultSize


        ScannerContext scannerContext = contextBuilder.build();

        while (numOfResults < maxResults) {


          moreRows = scanner.nextRaw(values, scannerContext);


Hope it helps.

Best Regards,
