Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3611) Make checksum on a compressed blocks optional
Date Sun, 11 Dec 2011 18:36:39 GMT


Peter Schuller commented on CASSANDRA-3611:

This may already have been implied, but on reads it might make sense to support a percentage
checking chance similarly to read-repair so that you can at least detect if things are really
broken, at a presumably low cost (if the randomness isn't too expensive, but it shouldn't
be with a thread-local Random), rather than having to choose between binary on/off.

Any measurements on relative cost of checksumming?

> Currently every uncompressed block is run against checksum algo, there is cpu overhead
in doing same... We might want to make it configurable/optional for some use cases which might
not require checksum all the time.
