Subject RE: is it a good idea to disable tables not currently hot?
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2016 16:58:20 GMT
There are two reasons I am hesitating going that route.

One is that most of tables are fairly small. Going to 10GB will force tables to shrink to
some nodes but not evenly distributed around the cluster, hence discouraging parallelism.
But I think I can manage this issue if the second is resolved.

The second issue, which I have battled with for two years now, is that I am doing online puts,
which occasionally triggers compacts when a region is heavily inserted, and whenever it happens,
all subsequent read/write are all on hold and I can see time out error on the client side.
A typical compact runs for 4 minutes now and I have to increase timeout on a number of places
to accommodate that. So if I increase the size to 10 GB, will compact time double?

So you can safely increase your maximum region size to 10GB, which will divide the number
of regions by 2. When you will be on 1.1.2 you can also do online merge to reduce this number
of regions. The might help too.
