Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9754) Make index info heap friendly for large CQL partitions
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2016 15:16:40 GMT


Jack Krupansky commented on CASSANDRA-9754:

Is this issue still considered a Minor priority? Seems like a bigger deal to me. +1 for making
it a Major priority - unless there is a longer list of even bigger fish in the queue.

Just today there is a user on the list struggling with time series data and really not wanting
to have to split a partition that he needs to be able to scan. Of source, scanning a super-wide
partition will still be a very bad idea anyway, but at least more narrow scans would still
be workable with this improvement in place.

Is this a 3.x improvement or 4.x or beyond? +1 for 3.x (3.6? 3.8?).

>  Looking at a heap dump of 2.0 cluster, I found that majority of the objects are IndexInfo
and its ByteBuffers. This is specially bad in endpoints with large CQL partitions. If a CQL
partition is say 6,4GB, it will have 100K IndexInfo objects and 200K ByteBuffers. This will
create a lot of churn for GC. Can this be improved by not creating so many objects?
