Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6638) SSTableScanner can Skip Rows with vnodes
Date Thu, 30 Jan 2014 13:32:09 GMT


Ignace Desimpel commented on CASSANDRA-6638:

Thanks for the simple patch! 
Related to efficiency : 
Suppose we have sstable data in every other range.
Then the first range gets data matching the range. The second does not, and a 'file' seek
done to the first key greater than the left of the this second range, thus to the first sample
key in the third range.
And then a loop is started over all the ifile entries until end of ifile file (there is no
upper boundary check)! 
That would repeat itself over and over again if we happen to have such a data and range arrangement
and depending on the number of vnodes.
Correct? That means a lot of work for nothing?

> CASSANDRA-2524 added multiple range support to SSTableScanner, but it looks like there
is at least one case where keys can be skipped.  This can result in cleanup removing legitimate
> See the attached patch that adds a unit test to reproduce the case.
