Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3578) Multithreaded commitlog
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2013 03:03:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-3578?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13798746#comment-13798746

Vijay commented on CASSANDRA-3578:
----------------------------------

Pushed my changes to https://github.com/Vijay2win/cassandra/commits/3578

* The above takes a different approach, we update commit log as a part of the mutation thread
and no more threads to deal with serialization. CAS operation to reserve a block of bytes
in the MMapped segment (Similar to slab allocator) and activate segments.
* Sync is managed in the separate thread still.
* Doesn't have a end of segment on each mutation, we just have header which will hold the
end.

We could clean up little more if it looks good.
Performance test shows a slight improvements... May be once we remove other bottlenecks the
improvements (also have to test on spinning drives) will be more visible.

> 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.)
