Enis Soztutar commented on HBASE-16698:
---------------------------------------

I also have a hard time understanding the patch. We are still serializing the 
seq assining, but this time via a lock. This lock is used from handlers to 
append to the ring buffer as well, which basically means that we are going back 
to the old model (0.98) and have no benefits coming from disruptor. Is the perf 
gains from context switches in case there is less contention for the mvcc lock? 
We have to serialize the edits via ring buffer and assign seq ids in the same 
order anyway. Is the RBEH doing too much work for appending? maybe we need two 
consumers for the ring buffer, one for assigning seq ids, and the other for 
doing the actual append?

> As titled, on our production environment we observed 98 out of 128 handlers 
> get stuck waiting for the CountDownLatch {{seqNumAssignedLatch}} inside 
> {{WALKey#getWriteEntry}} under a high writing workload.
> After digging into the problem, we found that the problem is mainly caused by 
> advancing mvcc in the append logic. Below is some detailed analysis:
> Under current branch-1 code logic, all batch puts will call 
> {{WALKey#getWriteEntry}} after appending edit to WAL, and 
> {{seqNumAssignedLatch}} is only released when the relative append call is 
> handled by RingBufferEventHandler (see {{FSWALEntry#stampRegionSequenceId}}). 
> Because currently we're using a single event handler for the ringbuffer, the 
> append calls are handled one by one (actually lot's of our current logic 
> depending on this sequential dealing logic), and this becomes a bottleneck 
> under high writing workload.
> The worst part is that by default we only use one WAL per RS, so appends on 
> all regions are dealt with in sequential, which causes contention among 
> different regions...
> To fix this, we could also take use of the "sequential appends" mechanism, 
> that we could grab the WriteEntry before publishing append onto ringbuffer 
> and use it as sequence id, only that we need to add a lock to make "grab 
> WriteEntry" and "append edit" a transaction. This will still cause contention 
> inside a region but could avoid contention between different regions. This 
> solution is already verified in our online environment and proved to be 
> effective.
> Notice that for master (2.0) branch since we already change the write 
> pipeline to sync before writing memstore (HBASE-15158), this issue only 
> exists for the ASYNC_WAL writes scenario.
