Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-4153) Optimize truncate when snapshots are disabled or keyspace not durable
Date Sun, 15 Apr 2012 00:53:17 GMT
Optimize truncate when snapshots are disabled or keyspace not durable
---------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CASSANDRA-4153
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4153
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Christian Spriegel
            Priority: Minor


My goal is to make truncate to be less IO intensive so that my junit tests run faster (as
already explained in CASSANDRA-3710). I think I have now a solution which does not change
too much:

I created a patch that optimizes three things within truncate:
- Skip the whole Commitlog.forceNewSegment/discardCompletedSegments, if durable_writes are
disabled for the keyspace.
- With CASSANDRA-3710 implemented, truncate does not need to flush memtables to disk when
snapshots are disabled.
- Reduce the sleep interval

The patch works nicely for me. Applying it and disabling durable_writes/autoSnapshot increased
the speed of my testsuite vastly. I hope I did not overlook something.

Let me know if my patch needs cleanup. I'd be glad to change it, if it means the patch will
get accepted.
