Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2521) Move away from Phantom References for Compaction/Memtable
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 04:46:17 GMT


Jeff Kesselman commented on CASSANDRA-2521:

Just a note: while relying on phantom references or finalizer for your cleanup is incorrect,
it is reasonable to use them to do a verification that your cleanup has occurred on those
objects that do get collected.  This is with the caveat however that PhantomReferences always
add something to your gc costs so you might want to make it switchable.
