Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-2940) Remove STATS RPCs from rowlock
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:16:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PHOENIX-2940?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15312558#comment-15312558
] 

Nick Dimiduk commented on PHOENIX-2940:
---------------------------------------

bq. we don't use stats on the server-side, only the client-side

Sure, but the server embeds a client, and my region server handlers are blocked scanning the
stats table.

bq. We might end up not having space to cache the stats on the client-side either, in which
case we could query for them based on the start/stop row as Maryann mentioned if we're ok
with the extra RPC.

I think it's reasonable to have stats available for clients, and that they don't change often
means it's fine to cache them. IMHO, the appropriate thing is to handle more gracefully a
larger amount of stats (ie, PHOENIX-2939).

> We have an unfortunate situation wherein we potentially execute many RPCs while holding
a row lock. This is problem is discussed in detail on the user list thread ["Write path blocked
by MetaDataEndpoint acquiring region lock"|http://search-hadoop.com/m/9UY0h2qRaBt6Tnaz1&subj=Write+path+blocked+by+MetaDataEndpoint+acquiring+region+lock].
During some situations, the [MetaDataEndpoint|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L492]
coprocessor will attempt to refresh it's view of the schema definitions and statistics. This
involves [taking a rowlock|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L2862],
executing a scan against the [local region|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L542],
and then a scan against a [potentially remote|https://github.com/apache/phoenix/blob/10909ae502095bac775d98e6d92288c5cad9b9a6/phoenix-core/src/main/java/org/apache/phoenix/coprocessor/MetaDataEndpointImpl.java#L964]
statistics table.
> This issue is apparently exacerbated by the use of user-provided timestamps (in my case,
the use of the ROW_TIMESTAMP feature, or perhaps as in PHOENIX-2607). When combined with other
issues (PHOENIX-2939), we end up with total gridlock in our handler threads -- everyone queued
behind the rowlock, scanning and rescanning SYSTEM.STATS. Because this happens in the MetaDataEndpoint,
the means by which all clients refresh their knowledge of schema, gridlock in that RS can
effectively stop all forward progress on the cluster.
