Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-4703) Provide an option to fully rebuild indexes asynchronously through SQL
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2019 19:59:00 GMT


Gokcen Iskender commented on PHOENIX-4703:

I will be implementing this Jira in multiple stages. Also, only Global indexes are relevant
for this jira.

For local indexes I opened PHOENIX-5263 because it is trickier to clean out the local indexes
(they share same table as data, same column family with other local indexes).

The first stage is the change of index tool to truncate Global index table.

The second stage is the addition of a sql stmt support.

> Currently if we run "ALTER INDEX ... REBUILD" , all the rows in the index are deleted
and the index is rebuilt synchronously.
> "ALTER INEX ... REBUILD ASYNC" seems to be used for the IndexTool's partial rebuild option,
> So it seems currently the only way to fully rebuild is the drop the index, and recreate
it.  This is burdensome as it requires have the schema DDL.
> We should have an option to fully rebuild asynchronously, that has the same semantics
as dropping and recreating the index.  A further advantage of this is we can maintain the
splits of the index table while dropping its data.  We are currently seeing issues where
rebuilding a large table via a MR job results in hotspotting due to all data regions writing
to the same index region at the start.
