This talk examines sources of latency in HBase, detailing steps along the read and write paths. We'll examine the entire request lifecycle, from client to server and back again. We'll also look at the different factors that impact latency, including GC, cache misses, and system failures. Finally, the talk will highlight some of the work done in 0.96+ to improve the reliability of HBase.
