Subject RE: Performance degradation on query analysis
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2019 20:48:01 GMT
Thanks, Josh. The problem was really related to reading the SYSTEM.STATS
There were only 8,000 rows in the table, but COUNT took more than 10
minutes. I noticed that the storage files (34) had a total size of 10 GB.

DELETE FROM SYSTEM.STATS did not help - the storage files are still 10 GB,
and COUNT took a long time.
Then I truncated the table from the hbase shell. And this fixed the
problem - after UPDATE STATS for each table, everything works fine.

Are there any known issues with SYSTEM.STATS table? Apache Phoenix 4.13.1
with 15 Region Servers.

Can you share the output you see from the EXPLAIN? Does it differ between
times it's "fast" and times it's "slow"?

Sharing the table(s) DDL statements would also help, along with the shape
and version of your cluster (e.g. Apache Phoenix 4.14.2 with 8

Spit-balling ideas:

Could be reads over the SYSTEM.CATALOG table or the SYSTEM.STATS table.

Have you looked more coarsely at the RegionServer logs/metrics? Any obvious
saturation issues (e.g. handlers consumed, JVM GC pauses, host CPU

Turn on DEBUG log4j client side (beware of chatty ZK logging) and see if
there's something obvious from when the EXPLAIN is slow.
