Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-5239) Send persistent subquery cache to all regionservers
Date Thu, 02 May 2019 02:49:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-5239?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16831393#comment-16831393
] 

Lars Hofhansl commented on PHOENIX-5239:
----------------------------------------

IMHO we're pushing application concerns into the database.

In an case, this *has* to come with a flag so it can be turned off, I would not want this
in any of our clusters. We cannot default to shipping to shipping a subquery to 1000 or more
server only because they *may be* later be involved in a query. As I said above that may work
if you are the only user of the system, in a multi-user/multi-tenant cluster this would be
a ... disaster. :)

That all said... If other committers give their +1 I won't -1 it, but I'm not a fan.

But -1 if it cannot be turned off via a config that defaults to off.

Sorry. I don't want to be a party pooper, but we need to consider the general case.

> PHOENIX-4666 introduced a persistent subquery cache that allowed phoenix to cache the
results from an expensive subquery (enabled with a {{USE_PERSISTENT_CACHE}} query hint) to
speed up subsequent queries.
> More context is available on the PHOENIX-4666 ticket, but a quick example would be a
query like:
> {code:java}
> SELECT /*+ USE_PERSISTENT_CACHE */ *
>     FROM table1
>     JOIN (SELECT id_1 FROM large_table WHERE x = 10) expensive_result
>     ON table1.id_1 = expensive_result.id_2
> WHERE table1.id_1 = [some_id]
> {code}
> Where lots of queries are ran, differing only by {{some_id}}. Our usage involves first
running one query over phoenix to warm the cache (which takes ~20 seconds), then once complete,
allowing the live query to run which utilize the persistent subquery cache (~100ms).
> However, we noticed that when phoenix sends the cache to the regionservers, it looks
at {{some_id}} in the outer query to figure out which regionservers might contain {{table1.id_1
= [some_id]}} ([code here|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/2084a6c/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/cache/ServerCacheClient.java#L282-L283]).
This means that when we first start running the query, we'll inconsistently hit the cache
until it ends up being propagated to all the regionservers.
> Basically, we'd like to have some way to warm the subquery cache and ensure it's on all
the regionservers so subsequent queries will always find the cache. I think the simplest solution
might be updating the [if statement in ServerCacheClient#addServerCache|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/2084a6c/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/cache/ServerCacheClient.java#L282-L283]
to simply always send the cache to all the regionservers if it's a persistent subquery:
> {code:java}
> - if ( ! servers.contains(entry) &&
> -         keyRanges.intersectRegion(regionStartKey, regionEndKey,
> -                 cacheUsingTable.getIndexType() == IndexType.LOCAL)) {
> + boolean keyRangesIntersect = keyRanges.intersectRegion(regionStartKey, regionEndKey,
> +         cacheUsingTable.getIndexType() == IndexType.LOCAL);
> + if (!servers.contains(entry) && (keyRangesIntersect || usePersistentCache))
{
> {code}
> I tested this out, and it seems to work as expected. If it sounds like an acceptable
solution, I'd be happy to make an actual PR. Or, if anyone has any other suggestions on better
ways to handle this, it would be much appreciated.
> FYI [~jamestaylor], [~elserj], and [~maryannxue] since it looks like you three handled
most of the review on the [original persistent cache PR|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/pull/298]
