Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7040) Replace read/write stage with per-disk access coordination
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:48:17 GMT


Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7040:

bq.  I don't think that's necessarily blocked by this work

Sure - and if you want to start building one right now, go to town :)

I only mean that I think it builds on the work here and in 5863, as they both involve intercepting
the points at which we perform disk accesses and inserting some (minimal) coordination inebetween
them. Swapping those interception points for something more intelligent is probably more straightforward
once we've done that, and having a cache in which to deposit the result is _probably_ helpful
too (definitely none of this is 100% essential though).

> As discussed in CASSANDRA-6995, current coordination of access to disk is suboptimal:
instead of ensuring disk accesses alone are coordinated, we instead coordinate at the level
of operations that may touch the disks, ensuring only so many are proceeding at once. As such,
tuning is difficult, and we incur unnecessary delays for operations that would not touch the
> Ideally we would instead simply use a shared coordination primitive to gate access to
the disk when we perform a rebuffer. This work would dovetail very nicely with any work in
CASSANDRA-5863, as we could prevent any blocking or context switching for data that we know
to be cached. It also, as far as I can tell, obviates the need for CASSANDRA-5239.
