Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2753) Capture the max client timestamp for an SSTable
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2011 07:28:17 GMT


Alan Liang commented on CASSANDRA-2753:

bq. No support for supercolumns?

Wow. Good catch. I've added test tests for this as well.

bq. it would be more clear if observeColumnsInSSTable took a CFMetaData object instead of
a CF, to get a serializer from.

I've added a helper method CFMetaData.getColumnSerializer() to do this.

bq. nit: SSTMC.setMaxTimestamp would be more accurately named updateMaxTimestamp

Makes sense.

bq. IMO SSTM deserialize versioning logic would be clearer if it were all in SSTMSerializer
instead of split between that and openFromDescriptor.

Makes sense.

bq. Suggest adding a comment that SSTableWriter.append(AbstractCompactedRow row) deliberately
avoids calling updateMaxTimestamp b/c otherwise we'd have to deserialize EchoedRow.

Sounds good.

bq. where is the max-timestamp-of-compacted-sstables logic? I didn't notice it.

I put this in ColumnFamilyStore.createCompactionWriter():

public SSTableWriter createCompactionWriter(long estimatedRows, String location, Collection<SSTableReader>
sstables) throws IOException
    ReplayPosition rp = ReplayPosition.getReplayPosition(sstables);
    SSTableMetadata.Collector sstableMetadataCollector = SSTableMetadata.createCollector().replayPosition(rp);

    // get the max timestamp of the precompacted sstables
    for (SSTableReader sstable : sstables)

    return new SSTableWriter(getTempSSTablePath(location), estimatedRows, metadata, partitioner,

bq. nit: renaming SSTableWriter.writeMetadata feels gratuitous

I renamed it back to writeMetadata.

bq. nit: prefer initializing fields that don't need constructor parameters, at declaration
time (looking at RowIndexer.sstMC)

Makes sense.
