Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-2940) Remove STATS RPCs from rowlock
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2016 19:14:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-2940?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15330198#comment-15330198

James Taylor commented on PHOENIX-2940:
---------------------------------------

Yes, that sounds correct. The RpcScheduler is only used for RPC traffic initiated from a RS.
If you make the call from a regular client, it won't go through that code path. Feel free
to update the test.

> We have an unfortunate situation wherein we potentially execute many RPCs while holding
a row lock. This is problem is discussed in detail on the user list thread ["Write path blocked
by MetaDataEndpoint acquiring region lock"|http://search-hadoop.com/m/9UY0h2qRaBt6Tnaz1&subj=Write+path+blocked+by+MetaDataEndpoint+acquiring+region+lock].
During some situations, the [MetaDataEndpoint|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L492]
coprocessor will attempt to refresh it's view of the schema definitions and statistics. This
involves [taking a rowlock|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L2862],
executing a scan against the [local region|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L542],
and then a scan against a [potentially remote|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L964]
statistics table.
> This issue is apparently exacerbated by the use of user-provided timestamps (in my case,
the use of the ROW_TIMESTAMP feature, or perhaps as in PHOENIX-2607). When combined with other
issues (PHOENIX-2939), we end up with total gridlock in our handler threads -- everyone queued
behind the rowlock, scanning and rescanning SYSTEM.STATS. Because this happens in the MetaDataEndpoint,
the means by which all clients refresh their knowledge of schema, gridlock in that RS can
effectively stop all forward progress on the cluster.
