Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-6369) Fix prepared statement size computation
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2013 11:33:21 GMT
Sylvain Lebresne created CASSANDRA-6369:

             Summary: Fix prepared statement size computation
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6369
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne
            Assignee: Sylvain Lebresne
             Fix For: 1.2.12, 2.0.3

When computed the size of CQLStatement to limit the prepared statement cache (CASSANDRA-6107),
we overestimate the actual memory used because the statement include a reference to the table
CFMetaData which measureDeep counts. And as it happens, that reference is big: on a simple
test preparing a very trivial select statement, I was able to only prepare 87 statements before
some started to be evicted because each statement was more than 93K big and more than 92K
of that was the CFMetaData object. As it happens there is no reason to account the CFMetaData
object at all since it's in memory anyway whether or not there is prepared statements or not.

Attaching a simple (if not extremely elegant) patch to remove what we don't care about of
the computation. Another solution would be to use the MemoryMeter.withTrackerProvider option
as we do in Memtable, but in the QueryProcessor case we currently use only one MemoryMeter,
not one per CF, so it didn't felt necessarilly cleaner. We could create one-shot MemoryMeter
object each time we need to measure a CQLStatement but that doesn't feel a lot simpler/cleaner
either. But if someone feels religious about some other solution, I don't care.
