BE Configuration

BE Configuration

This document mainly introduces the relevant configuration items of BE.

The BE configuration file be.conf is usually stored in the conf/ directory of the BE deployment path. In version 0.14, another configuration file be_custom.conf will be introduced. The configuration file is used to record the configuration items that are dynamically configured and persisted by the user during operation.

After the BE process is started, it will read the configuration items in be.conf first, and then read the configuration items in be_custom.conf. The configuration items in be_custom.conf will overwrite the same configuration items in be.conf.

The location of the be_custom.conf file can be configured in be.conf through the custom_config_dir configuration item.

View configuration items​

Users can view the current configuration items by visiting BE's web page:

http://be_host:be_webserver_port/varz

Set configuration items​

There are two ways to configure BE configuration items:

  1. Static configuration

    Add and set configuration items in the conf/be.conf file. The configuration items in be.conf will be read when BE starts. Configuration items not in be.conf will use default values.

  2. Dynamic configuration

    After BE starts, the configuration items can be dynamically set with the following commands.

    curl -X POST http://{be_ip}:{be_http_port}/api/update_config?{key}={value}

    In version 0.13 and before, the configuration items modified in this way will become invalid after the BE process restarts. In 0.14 and later versions, the modified configuration can be persisted through the following command. The modified configuration items are stored in the be_custom.conf file.

    curl -X POST http://{be_ip}:{be_http_port}/api/update_config?{key}={value}\&persist=true

Examples​

  1. Modify max_base_compaction_threads statically

    By adding in the be.conf file:

    max_base_compaction_threads=5

    Then restart the BE process to take effect the configuration.

  2. Modify streaming_load_max_mb dynamically

    After BE starts, the configuration item streaming_load_max_mb is dynamically set by the following command:

    curl -X POST http://{be_ip}:{be_http_port}/api/update_config?streaming_load_max_mb=1024

    The return value is as follows, indicating that the setting is successful.

    {
    "status": "OK",
    "msg": ""
    }

    The configuration will become invalid after the BE restarts. If you want to persist the modified results, use the following command:

    curl -X POST http://{be_ip}:{be_http_port}/api/update_config?streaming_load_max_mb=1024\&persist=true

  • Type: bool
  • Description: This configuration is used to control whether to serialize the protoBuf request and embed the Tuple/Block data into the controller attachment and send it through http brpc when the length of the Tuple/Block data is greater than 1.8G. To avoid errors when the length of the protoBuf request exceeds 2G: Bad request, error_text=[E1003]Fail to compress request.

If the filter rate of the filter condition is lower than this configuration, Doris will stop using the dynamic partition clipping condition for data filtering.
  • Default value: 90

doris_max_scan_key_num​

  • Type: int
  • Description: Used to limit the maximum number of scan keys that a scan node can split in a query request. When a conditional query request reaches the scan node, the scan node will try to split the conditions related to the key column in the query condition into multiple scan key ranges. After that, these scan key ranges will be assigned to multiple scanner threads for data scanning. A larger value usually means that more scanner threads can be used to increase the parallelism of the scanning operation. However, in high concurrency scenarios, too many threads may bring greater scheduling overhead and system load, and will slow down the query response speed. An empirical value is 50. This configuration can be configured separately at the session level. For details, please refer to the description of max_scan_key_num in Variables.
    • When the concurrency cannot be improved in high concurrency scenarios, try to reduce this value and observe the impact.

  • Default value: 10485760

max_pushdown_conditions_per_column​

  • Type: int

  • Description: Used to limit the maximum number of conditions that can be pushed down to the storage engine for a single column in a query request. During the execution of the query plan, the filter conditions on some columns can be pushed down to the storage engine, so that the index information in the storage engine can be used for data filtering, reducing the amount of data that needs to be scanned by the query. Such as equivalent conditions, conditions in IN predicates, etc. In most cases, this parameter only affects queries containing IN predicates. Such as WHERE colA IN (1,2,3,4, ...). A larger number means that more conditions in the IN predicate can be pushed to the storage engine, but too many conditions may cause an increase in random reads, and in some cases may reduce query efficiency. This configuration can be individually configured for session level. For details, please refer to the description of max_pushdown_conditions_per_column in Variables.
