Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10322) skipBytes is used extensively, but is slow
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:54:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10322?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14790725#comment-14790725
] 

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-10322:
--------------------------------------

I booboo'd. I meant we do want to throw EOF, but that's regrettably _not_ compatible with
{{skipBytes}} as defined by {{DataInput}} (which says clearly that it won't). We could change
that, of course, but it's a possible razor to cut ourselves on later (even if very unlikely)

> We skip a great deal to avoid materializing data. Ironically, however, skipping is just
as (perhaps more) expensive, as it allocates a temporary array of the size of the number of
bytes we want to skip.
> This trivial patch implements {{skipBytes}} more efficiently, and simplifies {{FileUtils.skipBytesFully}}
