Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7546) AtomicSortedColumns.addAllWithSizeDelta has a spin loop that allocates memory
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2014 09:44:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7546?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14135201#comment-14135201
] 

Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-7546:
---------------------------------------------

bq. https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=cassandra.git;a=log;h=f099e086f3f002789e24bd6c58e52b7553cd5381
is what was released according to the 2.1.0 tag in git vs what Sylvain Lebresne said in the
email thread regarding no changes after c6a2c65a75adea9a62896269da98dd036c8e57f3 which was
2.1.0-tentative

I messed up when tagging it, it's the vote email that was correct, and I apologize for the
confusion. I've updated the tag to reflect what was actually released.

> 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.
