Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-1969) Use BB for row cache - To Improve GC performance.
Date Mon, 04 Apr 2011 20:27:07 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1969:

Yes, using the raw Memory should work.  (You don't need the synchronization hack either, if
you avoid BB entirely.)

I've rebased again, fixed some tests, and split it back up into two patches. At worst, we
can commit 01 now and 02 for 0.8.1 or whenever JNA gets a release out.

One other problem: the configuration option (in patch 01) is causing a problem.

ant clean test

> Java BB.allocateDirect() will allocate native memory out of the JVM and will help reducing
the GC pressure in the JVM with a large Cache.
> From some of the basic tests it shows around 50% improvement than doing a normal Object
> In addition this patch provide the users an option to choose BB.allocateDirect or store
everything in the heap.
