The blocking happens in write path only. While reading there is no
blocking as such. Are you speaking abt throttling?
In write path the blocking comes in because of 2 reasons
1. Per region u have 128 MB of flush size. Means when this region
reaches this size, a flush is initiated. But that happens in
background. Still cells getting written to this region. But there is a
blocking multiplier which is 2 in ur case. Means before actual flush
completion, if the region size reaches 2 * 128 MB, that region will
not allow to take any writes. But here we will throw Exception back
to client so as to make it retry.
2. Global memstore size reaches the max. U have this as 40%. Means
40% of ur xmx for RS process. How much is this? And how many regions
u have? U allow every region to be 256 MB max. 256 * No of regions
is what u ideally try to allow. But ur global memstore size may be
lesser than this. So once this happens, the write are blocked. Not
throwing back any exceptions but the writer handlers at RS side are
blocked.. U can see these in logs also.. U referring to this only?
The IO on ur cluster decides the flush speed. Also there is config to
specify the number of flusher threads. Same way u can control the
number of threads for compactions (Minor). When compaction process i
lagging so behind, there might reach a situation that there are so
many HFiles under a store and in such cases, the flushers has to wait
for the compactions to get completed.. Pls see all these thread
counts and notice how big ur flush Q and compaction Q grows..
