Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-11206) Support large partitions on the 3.0 sstable format
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2016 09:40:05 GMT


Robert Stupp commented on CASSANDRA-11206:

bq. RowIndexEntry$serializedSize used to return the size of the index for the entire row.
The meaning of this method changed but hasn't been renamed accordingly - my bad. It just returns
the serialized size of these fields, so without the actual "index payload".

bq. Javadoc for IndexInfo
The only real new thing in 3.0 index format is the table with the offsets to the IndexInfo
objects. The rest has changed mostly by switching to vint encoding - "hidden" by the note
for "ma" _store rows natively_.

bq. Pre_C_11206_RowIndexEntry
You can safely ignore (or even remove) the Pre-C-11206 stuff in RowIndexEntryTest. It just
felt safer to have it initially as it was meant to ensure that the new implementation is binary
compatible with the old one.

> Cassandra saves a sample of IndexInfo objects that store the offset within each partition
of every 64KB (by default) range of rows.  To find a row, we binary search this sample, then
scan the partition of the appropriate range.
> The problem is that this scales poorly as partitions grow: on a cache miss, we deserialize
the entire set of IndexInfo, which both creates a lot of GC overhead (as noted in CASSANDRA-9754)
but is also non-negligible i/o activity (relative to reading a single 64KB row range) as partitions
get truly large.
> We introduced an "offset map" in CASSANDRA-10314 that allows us to perform the IndexInfo
bsearch while only deserializing IndexInfo that we need to compare against, i.e. log(N) deserializations.
