Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9738) Migrate key-cache to be fully off-heap
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:00:47 GMT


Ariel Weisberg commented on CASSANDRA-9738:

For observers. We hit a snag. The key cache values can be quite large. There is an entry in
each value for every row per partition so it can be in the thousands. This likely means that
copying the entire thing on heap to operate on it once per read is not going to match the
performance of the existing POJO implementation. Robert is going to benchmark a more representative

It's a tractable problem but we will need to an off heap list implementation for variable
size objects that supports binary search without materializing each entry in the search.

> Key cache still uses a concurrent map on-heap. This could go to off-heap and feels doable
now after CASSANDRA-8099.
> Evaluation should be done in advance based on a POC to prove that pure off-heap counter
cache buys a performance and/or gc-pressure improvement.
> In theory, elimination of on-heap management of the map should buy us some benefit.
