Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-2820) Re-introduce FastByteArrayInputStream (and Output equivalent)

Re-introduce FastByteArrayInputStream (and Output equivalent)

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2820
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.8.0, 0.7.6
         Environment: n/a
            Reporter: Paul Loy
            Priority: Minor

In FastByteArrayInputStream and FastByteArrayOutputStream
were removed due to being code copied from the JDK and then subsequently modified. The JDK
license is incompatible with Apache 2 license so the code had to go.

I have since had a look at the performance of the JDK ByteArrayInputStream and a FastByteArrayInputStream
(i.e. one with synchronized methods made un-synchronized) and seen the difference is significant.

After a warmup-period of >10000 loops I get the following for 10000 loops through a 128000
byte array:

bais : 3513ms
fbais: 72ms

This varies depending on the OS, machine and Java version, but it's always in favour of the
FastByteArrayInputStream as you might expect.

Then, at Jonathan Ellis' suggestion, I tried this using a modified Apache Harmony ByteArrayInputStream
- i.e. one whose license is compatible - and the results were the same. A significant boost.

I will attach a patch with changes for the 0.8.0 tag.
