Re: independent scans to same region processed serially
All data is the blockcache and there are plenty of handlers. To repro,
you could:
- create a table pre-split into, for example, three regions
- execute serially a scan on the middle region
- execute two parallel scans each on half of the middle region
- you'd expect the parallel scan to execute near twice as fast, but
we're seeing it execute slower than the serial scan.
We're using the same HConnection with different HTable instances for
each scan.

> Wanted to check with folks and see if they've seen an issue around this before digging in deeper. I'm on 0.94.2. If I execute in parallel multiple scans to different parts of the same region, they appear to be processed serially. It's actually faster from the client side to execute a single serial scan than it is to execute multiple parallel scans to different segments of the region. I do have region observer coprocessors for the table I'm scanning, but my code is not doing any synchronization.
