Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9779) Append-only optimization
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:58:58 GMT

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-9779:
-------------------------------------------

Easy enough to ignore merges of the same value.  Same problem + solution in the case of timed-out
updates that get retried.

> Many common workloads are append-only: that is, they insert new rows but do not update
existing ones.  However, Cassandra has no way to infer this and so it must treat all tables
as if they may experience updates in the future.
> If we added syntax to tell Cassandra about this ({{WITH INSERTS ONLY}} for instance)
then we could do a number of optimizations:
> - Compaction would only need to worry about defragmenting partitions, not rows.  We could
default to DTCS or similar.
> - CollationController could stop scanning sstables as soon as it finds a matching row
> - Most importantly, materialized views wouldn't need to worry about deleting prior values,
which would eliminate the majority of the MV overhead
