Subject [jira] [Created] (CARBONDATA-470) Add unsafe offheap and on-heap sort in carbodata loading

Ravindra Pesala created CARBONDATA-470:

             Summary: Add unsafe offheap and on-heap sort in carbodata loading
                 Key: CARBONDATA-470
             Project: CarbonData
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ravindra Pesala

In the current carbondata system loading performance is not so encouraging since we need to
sort the data at executor level for data loading. Carbondata collects batch of data and sorts
before dumping to the temporary files and finally it does merge sort from those temporary
files to finish sorting. Here we face two major issues , one is disk IO and second is GC issue.
Even though we dump to the file still carbondata face lot of GC issue since we sort batch
data in-memory before dumping to the temporary files.

To solve the above problems we can introduce Unsafe Storage and Unsafe sort.
Unsafe Storage : User can configure the memory limit to keep the amount of data to in-memory.
Here we can keep all the data in continuous memory location either on off-heap or on-heap
using Unsafe. Once configure limit exceeds remaining data will be spilled to disk.
Unsafe Sort : The data which is store in-memory using Unsafe can be sorted using Unsafe sort.
