Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7282) Faster Memtable map
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 20:42:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7282?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14019210#comment-14019210

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7282:
-------------------------------------

There was a minor bug with compatability mode for non-murmur3 partitioners. Unfortunately
it looks like the unit tests and dtests all specify ByteOrderedPartitioner, making this difficult
to test thoroughly across all database features. It works fine with stress, but I will need
to write some thorough bespoke unit tests.

> Currently we maintain a ConcurrentSkipLastMap of DecoratedKey -> Partition in our
memtables. Maintaining this is an O(lg(n)) operation; since the vast majority of users use
a hash partitioner, it occurs to me we could maintain a hybrid ordered list / hash map. The
list would impose the normal order on the collection, but a hash index would live alongside
as part of the same data structure, simply mapping into the list and permitting O(1) lookups
and inserts.
> I've chosen to implement this initial version as a linked-list node per item, but we
can optimise this in future by storing fatter nodes that permit a cache-line's worth of hashes
to be checked at once,  further reducing the constant factor costs for lookups.
