Subject [jira] [Created] (CARBONDATA-527) Greater than/less-than/Like filters optimization for dictionary columns
Date Mon, 12 Dec 2016 18:17:59 GMT
Sujith created CARBONDATA-527:

             Summary: Greater than/less-than/Like filters optimization for dictionary columns
                 Key: CARBONDATA-527
             Project: CarbonData
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sujith

Current design 
In greater than/less-than/Like filters, system first iterates each row present in the dictionary
cache for identifying valid filter actual members  by applying the filter expression , once
evaluation done system will hold the list of identified valid filter actual member values(String),
now in next step again  system will look up the dictionary cache in order to identify the
dictionary surrogate values of the identified members. this look up is an additional cost
to our system even though the look up methodology is an binary search in dictionary cache.
Proposed design/solution:
Identify the dictionary surrogate values in filter expression evaluation step itself  when
actual dictionary values will be scanned for identifying valid filter members .

Keep a dictionary counter variable which will be increased  when system iterates through 
the dictionary cache in order to retrieve each actual member stored in dictionary cache ,
after this system will evaluate each row against the filter expression to identify whether
its a valid filter member or not, while doing this process itself counter value can be taken
as valid selected dictionary value since the actual member values and its  dictionary values
will be kept in same order in dictionary cache as the iteration order.

thus it will eliminate the further dictionary look up step which is required  to retrieve
the dictionary surrogate value against identified actual valid filter member. this can also
increase significantly the filter query performance of such filter queries which require expression
evaluation to identify it the filter members by looking up dictionary cache, like greater
than/less-than/Like filters .

Note : this optimization is applicable for dictionary columns.
