Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-7130) Make sstable checksum type configurable and optional
Date Thu, 01 May 2014 23:12:14 GMT


Benedict resolved CASSANDRA-7130.

    Resolution: Not a Problem

I was also overestimating how slow Adler32 is - I can push nearly 1Gb/s on a single cpu, so
it's definitely not going to be an issue for a while - even if we are calculating it twice.

> A lot of our users are becoming bottlenecked on CPU rather than IO, and whilst Adler32
is faster than CRC, it isn't anything like as fast as xxhash (used by LZ4), which can push
Gb/s. I propose making the checksum type configurable so that users who want speed can shift
to xxhash, and those who want security can use Adler or CRC.
> It's worth noting that at some point in the future (JDK8?) optimised implementations
using latest intel crc instructions will be added, though it's not clear from the mailing
list discussion if/when that will materialise:
