Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3997) Make SerializingCache Memory Pluggable
Date Sat, 24 Mar 2012 23:14:27 GMT


Vijay commented on CASSANDRA-3997:

Have an update:

Jason Evan's says: "LD_PRELOAD'ing jemalloc should be okay as long as the JVM doesn't statically
link a different malloc implementation.  I expect that if it isn't safe, you'll experience
crashes quite early on, so give it a try and see what happens."

I have also conformed the unsafe isn't statically linked to native Malloc by adding a printf
in the malloc c code which basically count's the number of times it is called. Looks like
PRELOAD is a better option. I am running a long running test and will close this ticket once
it is successful. Thanks!

> Serializing cache uses native malloc and free by making FM pluggable, users will have
a choice of gcc malloc, TCMalloc or JEMalloc as needed. 
> Initial tests shows less fragmentation in JEMalloc but the only issue with it is that
(both TCMalloc and JEMalloc) are kind of single threaded (at-least they crash in my test otherwise).
