Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4050) Unable to remove snapshot files on Windows while original sstables are live
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2014 21:30:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4050?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13939831#comment-13939831

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4050:
-------------------------------------------

bq. I'd like to drop the mapped i/o separately

WFM.

bq. do we have perf #'s from when we added the memory mapped i/o into the code-path

It was a long time ago (CASSANDRA-408, CASSANDRA-669).  It was a pretty big win at the time
(10%?  20%?) because we were basically doing zero-copy reads from the mapped buffers.  The
problem is that we had to give that up when we started manually unmapping obsolete sstables
(CASSANDRA-2521) -- too hard to push refcounting all the way up the read path, so we gave
up and just copy to a new buffer after all.

> I'm using Cassandra 1.0.8, on Windows 7.  When I take a snapshot of the database, I find
that I am unable to delete the snapshot directory (i.e., dir named "{datadir}\{keyspacename}\snapshots\{snapshottag}")
while Cassandra is running:  "The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in
it is open in another program.  Close the folder or file and try again" [in Windows Explorer].
 If I terminate Cassandra, then I can delete the directory with no problem.
> I expect to be able to move or delete the snapshotted files while Cassandra is running,
as this should not affect the runtime operation of Cassandra.
