Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2470) Secondary Indexes Build Very Slowly
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 19:28:06 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-2470:

I'm thinking that our best bet here is CASSANDRA-2324 (if repair doesn't transfer a lot more
data than necessary, index building will also be faster).

> While running repair I noticed that the time it took to run was easily dominated by building
the secondary indexes. They currently build at a rate of < 200KB/Second. This means that
indexing a 500MB file takes nearly an hour to index the file.
> Because this happens on the compaction thread it also causes repair to back up in general,
which for very active systems is a very bad thing.
> I suggest we look at it in the hope that we can improve the rate in which we build the
indexes by an order of magnitude.
