Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6483) Possible Collections.sort assertion failure in STCS.filterColdSSTables
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2013 03:55:07 GMT


graham sanderson commented on CASSANDRA-6483:

Adding my questions from dev-email thread

Note that the CASSANDRA-6109 feature claims to be “off” by default, however it isn’t
immediately clear to me from that patch how “off” is implemented, and whether it is supposed
to go down that code path even when “off"

I’m guessing there no actual downside (other than ERROR level messages in the logs which
cause alerts), since it just fails a subset of compaction runs?

> The comparator ant SizeTieredCompactionStrategy line 94 breaks the assertions in the
new JDK7 default sort algorithm, because (I think just) the hotness value (based on meter)
may be modified concurrently by another thread
> This bug appears to have been introduced in CASSANDRA-6109
