Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-674) New SSTable Format
Date Tue, 01 Feb 2011 09:17:29 GMT


Stu Hood updated CASSANDRA-674:

    Attachment: 674-v2.tgz

Attaching a snapshot of the work on this new design for the file format. There are a few important
blockers not implemented, as evidenced by failing tests, but I feel confident that serialization
and format themselves are solid.

Please carefully note the caveats listed under {{v2}} on the design doc:
In particular, we will barely see the benefits of compression with this implementation, because
only Spans are storing at most 1 row. Storing more than one row in a span will require an
index change, and I'd feel much better doing it once this is in trunk.

> Various tickets exist due to limitations in the SSTable file format, including #16, #47
and #328. Attached is a proposed design/implementation of a new file format for SSTables that
addresses a few of these limitations.

It is roughly the format described here:
