Subject Re: Exceeding the DataStorageConfiguration#getMaxWalArchiveSize due to historical rebalance
Date Sun, 09 May 2021 16:12:17 GMT
Discuss this with Kirill verbally.

Kirill showed me that having the min threshold doesn't quite work.
It doesn't work because we no longer know how much WAL we should remove if we reach getMaxWalArchiveSize.

For example, say we have minWalArchiveTimespan=2 hours and maxWalArchiveSize=2GB.
Say, under normal load on stable topology 2 hours of WAL use 1 GB of space.
Now, say we're doing historical rebalance and reserve the WAL archive.
The WAL archive starts growing and soon it occupies 2 GB.
Now what?
We're supposed to give up WAL reservations and start agressively removing WAL archive.
But it is not clear when can we stop removing WAL archive - since last 2 hours of WAL are
larger than our maxWalArchiveSize
there is no meaningful point the system can use as a "minimum" WAL size.

I understand the description above is a bit messy but I believe that whoever is interested
in this will understand it
after drawing this on paper.

I'm giving up on my latest suggestion about time-based minimum. Let's keep it simple.

I suggest the minWalArchiveSize and maxWalArchvieSize properties as the solution,
with the behavior as initially described by Kirill.
