Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2252) off-heap memtables
Date Sat, 26 Feb 2011 07:23:21 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-2252:

Patches to add MemtableAllocator (based on Todd's MemStoreLAB) and off-heap allocation via

I gave up on trying to do the allocation for this and interning during deserialize; the code
got very tangled and felt fragile.  Instead, we copy during Memtable.put, which feels right
since there is no way to screw ourselves by forgetting to copy in a new code path.  I think
I'm willing to bite the extra copy for that.

> The memtable design practically actively fights Java's GC design.  Todd Lipcon gave a
good explanation over on HBASE-3455.
