Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5863) Create a Decompressed Chunk [block] Cache
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 21:15:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5863?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13923074#comment-13923074

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-5863:
-------------------------------------

I'm not sure that would be a useful comparison, as RAIDZ is rubbish. L2ARC exists to combat
ZFS' inherent weaknesses, so it wouldn't give us an idea of what a similar feature might achieve
for us.

> Currently, for every read, the CRAR reads each compressed chunk into a byte[], sends
it to ICompressor, gets back another byte[] and verifies a checksum.  
> This process is where the majority of time is spent in a read request.  
> Before compression, we would have zero-copy of data and could respond directly from the
page-cache.
> It would be useful to have some kind of Chunk cache that could speed up this process
for hot data. Initially this could be a off heap cache but it would be great to put these
decompressed chunks onto a SSD so the hot data lives on a fast disk similar to https://github.com/facebook/flashcache.
