Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3174) Avoid mutation copy on remote replica
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2014 16:22:33 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3174:

             Summary: Avoid mutation copy on remote replica
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3174
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: replication
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.7.0

To ensure that all replicas see mutations applied in the same order as the source, we need
to preserve the timestamp on the received mutations to replicate (either user-assigned or

The way that ServerMutation implements the server-assigned timestamp is done so as to not
modify the serialized bytes (for efficiencies sake). The problem arises when the ServerMutation
is cast back to a "regular" Mutation, the timestamp that the system assigned, which was tracked
outside of the serialized bytes, is lost and a new server-assigned timestamp is used.

The naive way to circumvent this is to copy the ServerMutation into a new Mutation, checking
for a system-assigned timestamp and set that on the updates for each Mutation. This has a
big downside as the amount of required heap nearly doubled (assuming that the mutations are
the majority of memory used).
