Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4937) CRAR improvements (object cache + CompressionMetadata chunk offset storage moved off-heap).
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 23:51:12 GMT


Pavel Yaskevich commented on CASSANDRA-4937:

bq. Still don't like the global objectCache code. SSTR queue (no Map) would be better. Or,
what about SSTR Threadlocal?

The reason why it's done via queues associated with filenames is that we want to get rid of
CRAR instances as soon as we done with individual SSTables and I don't want to involve SSTR
there more then just cleaning queues upon termination.

bq. Isn't the right fix then to only drop the recently-read blocks during sequential i/o?

We can't because it would require (e.g. compaction) to know of how something is using files,
it could remove cache from somebody's fit anyway and we would use too many system calls if
we do that.

> After good amount of testing on one of the clusters it was found that in order to improve
read latency we need to minimize allocation rate that compression involves, that minimizes
GC (as well as heap usage) and substantially decreases latency on read heavy workloads. 
> I have also discovered that RAR skip cache harms performance in situation when reads
are done in parallel with compaction working with relatively big SSTable files (few GB and
more). The attached patch removes possibility to skip cache from compressed files (I can also
add changes to RAR to remove skip cache functionality as a separate patch).
