Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-4222) Improve serializing off-heap cache by not using finalizers
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 23:11:48 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-4222.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 1.1.1
         Reviewer: jbellis
         Assignee: Marcus Eriksson

It would be nice to have some kind of optional leak detection finalizer, but in the meantime
you're right that this is unnecessary and a performance hit.  Committed to 1.1.1 and trunk

> We have a cluster that takes alot of reads and we have some issues with the off-heap
caching, seeing several G of Finalizer objects on the heap
> My conclusion is that the finalizer thread is too slow to run the finalize method on
the FreeableMemory (and Memory) objects.
> Simply removing the finalize() methods improves performance _alot_ (using finalizers
is 50% slower in my micro benchmarks) and does not leak memory during "normal" use as far
as i can see
> im not sure about the implications for other use cases though
