Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-1902) Migrate cached pages during compaction
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 14:06:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1902?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13021033#comment-13021033
] 

Pavel Yaskevich commented on CASSANDRA-1902:
--------------------------------------------

What I want here is to use the same data source for compaction and reads and though use a
memory mapping cache instead of adding normal I/O via BRAF. MADV_RANDOM flag could be used
for SegmentedFile to avoid read-ahead, seeks on mmaped files aren't as expensive as using
normal I/O, also using madvice and information from mincore we can leave page cache almost
untouched during compaction.

> Post CASSANDRA-1470 there is an opportunity to migrate cached pages from a pre-compacted
CF during the compaction process.  This is now important since CASSANDRA-1470 caches effectively
nothing.  
> For example an active CF being compacted hurts reads since nothing is cached in the new
SSTable. 
> The purpose of this ticket then is to make sure SOME data is cached from active CFs.
This can be done my monitoring which Old SSTables are in the page cache and caching active
rows in the New SStable.
> A simpler yet similar approach is described here: http://insights.oetiker.ch/linux/fadvise/
