Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10496) Make DTCS/TWCS split partitions based on time during compaction
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2017 04:30:02 GMT


mck commented on CASSANDRA-10496:

While completely forgetting about this ticket, I did the following (completely untested) experiment:

This took a slightly different approach in that it splits compacted sstables based on the
'sstable_size_in_mb' option (which is only used as a hint really), but still sorts partitions
over the splits by time. It wouldn't isolate specific "old" data into seperate old sstables
as the ticket description describes, but it helps in the situation where different TTLs are
used within the same TWCS table, and would partially help in the ticket's described use-case.
In the same line of thinking it's worth noting that CASSANDRA-10540 can help in situations
(depending on the extent and distribution of the problem).

> To avoid getting old data in new time windows with DTCS (or related, like [TWCS|CASSANDRA-9666]),
we need to split out old data into its own sstable during compaction.
> My initial idea is to just create two sstables, when we create the compaction task we
state the start and end times for the window, and any data older than the window will be put
in its own sstable.
> By creating a single sstable with old data, we will incrementally get the windows correct
- say we have an sstable with these timestamps:
> {{[100, 99, 98, 97, 75, 50, 10]}}
> and we are compacting in window {{[100, 80]}} - we would create two sstables:
> {{[100, 99, 98, 97]}}, {{[75, 50, 10]}}, and the first window is now 'correct'. The next
compaction would compact in window {{[80, 60]}} and create sstables {{[75]}}, {{[50, 10]}}
> We will probably also want to base the windows on the newest data in the sstables so
that we actually have older data than the window.
