Subject Re: Async get
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2017 06:08:43 GMT
I agree here but will go farther. Hbase needs an asynchronous api that goes further than its
current capability, for example like building lamda functions in the client tier that execute
in a java streams manner. Being able to run mapping functions, aggregations, etc without needing
coprocessors would be a big win. If Hbase doesn’t do it, the next thing will.

a big cluster, you have to have a ridiculously large thread pool on the client side (4000
threads for cluster with 100s of nodes). A netty-based means of interacting would allow us
to drive down the latency without resorting to this (though this is pure conjecture at this
point - we might run into other, unknown scaling constraints through an async API). Asynchbase,
however, has a lot of restrictions in terms of how you can interact with the server. If it
could become part of HBase and support the full wire protocol, then it might be an option.
