Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-241) move daemon to framed transport (thrift)
Date Sat, 08 Aug 2009 05:30:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-241?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12740840#action_12740840
] 

Michael Greene commented on CASSANDRA-241:
------------------------------------------

It shouldn't be too difficult to make framed an option.  I think we should add the option
to 0.4 (keeping the existing non-framed as default) until further evaluation for 0.5.

> The framed transports in thrift wrap the underlying transport to prepend the message
size as a 4 byte value.  There are purported benefits to buffering, but the main purpose of
these wrappers is to allow non-blocking servers to perform reads without deserialization.
Of course, if the server transport is framed, the client's must be as well, and vice versa,
(framed and non-framed transports are incompatible). 
> CassandraDaemon is currently a threaded server with the default transport, I believe
we should change it to being framed, for compatibility with non-blocking clients (this actually
came up during an attempt to use a Twisted client).
> This will break all existing client apps, (even if fixing them is trivial).
