Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7546) AtomicSortedColumns.addAllWithSizeDelta has a spin lock that allocates memory
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2014 01:26:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14061518#comment-14061518

graham sanderson commented on CASSANDRA-7546:
---------------------------------------------

Note that whilst the three loops are at first a bit ugly, I'm not sure that mixing them together
would make things clearer - mixing the sync loop in would also require {{sun.misc.Unsafe}}
to acquire and un-acquire the monitor

> In order to preserve atomicity, this code attempts to read, clone/update, then CAS the
state of the partition.
> Under heavy contention for updating a single partition this can cause some fairly staggering
memory growth (the more cores on your machine the worst it gets).
> Whilst many usage patterns don't do highly concurrent updates to the same partition,
hinting today, does, and in this case wild (order(s) of magnitude more than expected) memory
allocation rates can be seen (especially when the updates being hinted are small updates to
different partitions which can happen very fast on their own) - see CASSANDRA-7545
> It would be best to eliminate/reduce/limit the spinning memory allocation whilst not
slowing down the very common un-contended case.
