Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-4323) LocalIndexes could fail if your data row is not in the same region as your index region
Date Thu, 02 Nov 2017 05:12:02 GMT


Lars Hofhansl commented on PHOENIX-4323:

Reflecting on more... The issue occurs when index row-keys end being > the region end key.
That is perhaps not as unlikely as one thinks.

The region start and end keys are driven by the data in the main column family - those are
the values that are actually being inserted, the index rows are written as a side-effect of
those writes. Hence the region end key could be relative close to highest regular row key.
Now let's take the row key and append the rest of the index data to it, the next byte after
the row-key can be anything from 0-255, a higher value there can be fairly easily be outside
of the region.

We can force the end-key to be higher somehow. We can also introduce a split policy avoiding
splitting regions between rows and index rows.

I still think we cat pretty far by simply padding the rowkey part with 0 before appending
the rest of the index key part.

We can always construct a case (like in this case allowing on a single row to exist in the
region). Can we make a natural occurrence of this rare enough?

if encountered.

can happen. The write will never succeed unless you merge regions if this ever happens.
