Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3578) Multithreaded commitlog
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 20:52:54 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3578?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13773408#comment-13773408
] 

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-3578:
-------------------------------------------

I've seen several cases of nodes failing to keep up with write requests where the commitlog
was the bottleneck.  These were all workloads throwing MB-sized columns around.  Granted,
that's not exactly our bread and butter.

> Brian Aker pointed out a while ago that allowing multiple threads to modify the commitlog
simultaneously (reserving space for each with a CAS first, the way we do in the SlabAllocator.Region.allocate)
can improve performance, since you're not bottlenecking on a single thread to do all the copying
and CRC computation.
> Now that we use mmap'd CommitLog segments (CASSANDRA-3411) this becomes doable.
> (moved from CASSANDRA-622, which was getting a bit muddled.)
