Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8709) Convert SequentialWriter from using RandomAccessFile to nio channel
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2015 06:41:05 GMT


T Jake Luciani commented on CASSANDRA-8709:

All of your non-direct byte buffer code makes me nervous since you are accessing .array()
but I see these are always your own buffers you allocate and never slice so it should be ok...

In particular CompressedSW.flushData() calls crcMetadata.append(compressed.buffer.array(),
compressed.buffer.position(), compressed.buffer.limit()) where the last param should be compressed.buffer.remaining().
 I don't think this is a real bug since you have called rewind just before so limit() == remaining()
in this case. perhaps crcMetadata.append(compressed.buffer.array(), 0, compressed.buffer.limit())
is clearer.


In DataIntegrityMetadata, your new appendDirect call shouldn't be using mark and reset since
it's racy.  Better to .duplicate() the input buffer.


In LZ4Compressor.compress() the source length should be using .remaining() not .limit()


Please write a test to write and validate a CompressedSW using all different compressors.

> For non-mmap'ed I/O on Windows, using nio channels will give us substantially more flexibility
w/regards to renaming and moving files around while writing them.  This change in conjunction
with CASSANDRA-4050 should allow us to remove the Windows bypass code in SSTableRewriter for
non-memory-mapped I/O.
> In general, migrating from instances of RandomAccessFile to nio channels will help make
Windows and linux behavior more consistent.
