Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6609) Reduce Bloom Filter Garbage Allocation
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 19:25:26 GMT


Jason Brown commented on CASSANDRA-6609:

bq. Escape analysis

Ahh, I'll buy that, cautiously :). 

As an alternative, and I didn't look too hard if the code can bend this way, you might be
able to get away with just passing around 2 longs instead of a long[], as we're dealing with,
more or less, a 128-bit value. Then you avoid the array object altogether, and those will
be stack allocated.

> Just spotted that we allocate potentially large amounts of garbage on bloom filter lookups,
since we allocate a new long[] for each hash() and to store the bucket indexes we visit, in
a manner that guarantees they are allocated on heap. With a lot of sstables and many requests,
this could easily be hundreds of megabytes of young gen churn per second.
