Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4937) CRAR improvements (object cache + CompressionMetadata chunk offset storage moved off-heap).
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 20:08:13 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4937:

90% is much more likely to be useful than blindly WILLNEEDing everything, though, which would
be a shot in the foot for wide-row HDD deployments (of which there are many).

In my mind the sane options are:
- Don't bother preheating
- Attempt to preheat only rows where it will do some good

> 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).
