Subject [jira] [Created] (CARBONDATA-726) Update with V3 format for better IO and processing optimization.
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:27:44 GMT
Ravindra Pesala created CARBONDATA-726:

             Summary: Update with V3 format for better IO and processing optimization.
                 Key: CARBONDATA-726
             Project: CarbonData
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Ravindra Pesala

Problems in current format.
1. IO read is slower since it needs to go for multiple seeks on the file to read column blocklets.
Current size of blocklet is 120000, so it needs to read multiple times from file to scan the
data on that column. Alternatively we can increase the blocklet size but it suffers for filter
queries as it gets big blocklet to filter.
2. Decompression is slower in current format, we are using inverted index for faster filter
queries and using NumberCompressor to compress the inverted index in bit wise packing. It
becomes slower so we should avoid number compressor. One alternative is to keep blocklet size
with in 32000 so that inverted index can be written with short, but IO read suffers a lot.

To overcome from above 2 issues we are introducing new format V3.
Here each blocklet has multiple pages with size 32000, number of pages in blocklet is configurable.
Since we keep the page with in short limit so no need compress the inverted index here.
And maintain the max/min for each page to further prune the filter queries.
Read the blocklet with pages at once and keep in offheap memory.
During filter first check the max/min range and if it is valid then go for decompressing the
page to filter further.
