Subject [jira] [Created] (PHOENIX-5044) Remove server side mutation code from Phoenix
Date Tue, 27 Nov 2018 22:04:00 GMT
Lars Hofhansl created PHOENIX-5044:

             Summary: Remove server side mutation code from Phoenix
                 Key: PHOENIX-5044
             Project: Phoenix
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Lars Hofhansl

This is for *discussion*.

It generally seems to be a bad idea - if well-intentioned - idea to trigger mutations directly
from the server. The main causes are UPSERT SELECT for the same table and DELETE FROM.

IMHO, it's generally better to allow the client to handle this. There might be larger network
overhead, but we get better chunking, better pacing, and behavior more in line with how HBase
was intended to work.

In PHOENIX-5026 I introduced a flag to disable server triggered mutations in the two cases
mentioned above. I now think it's better to just remove the server code and also perform these
from the client.

(Not that server side reads - aggregation, filters, etc - are still insanely valuable and
not affected by this)

Let's discuss.
