Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3024) sstable and message varint encoding
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 03:46:08 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-3024:

Interesting idea.  Seems like that might get tricky though where we are going from socket
to file or vice versa in Streaming.  And some places don't make sense to use vints, although
the only ones I can think of are in checksums.

To take a step back: how much does vint encoding actually buy us, with compression enabled?

 (Probably most "short" lengths would be better as vint as well.)
