Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5862) Switch to adler checksum for sstables
Date Tue, 24 Sep 2013 06:43:05 GMT


Bert Sanders commented on CASSANDRA-5862:

Thanks, my bad, I was confused.

If my understanding is correct, SStables are a set of 2 files, 
one index, with bloom filters and Key/offset pairs
and one for data by column.

So I guess this issue is only about checksumming of the data part.

And about real-world benefits : 
I guess that if testing with Adler32 was enough to measure benefits, 
a faster Hash should be even easier to measure.

> Adler is significantly faster than CRC32:
> (Adler is weaker for short inputs, so we should leave the commitlog alone, as it checksums
each mutation individually.)
