Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1124) Refactor couch_btree.erl
Date Sat, 16 Apr 2011 04:02:06 GMT


Damien Katz commented on COUCHDB-1124:

I have't looked closely at the patch, but with this module it's most important to not lose
performance. One thing that jumps out at me is the cmp_keys function. I'd be sure to benchmark
the the view indexing with large, complex keys, and the less comparisons will likely be happening
more often and we've seen that be a performance bottleneck in the past.

> I've completely refactored couch_btree.erl in an attempt to make it more palatable for
people that want to learn it. The current version is quite organic in its nature and this
cleans up the code to be more consumable. Most everyone that's seen this patch has wanted
it in trunk but I never got around to committing it.
> The patch I'm about to attach is quite gnarly as it's basically deleting and recreating
the entire file. I find it quite a bit more helpful to read the end result which you can do
at [1].
> Also, if we do commit this then the code in COUCHDB-1084 will be quite broken for the
btree section. If that patch still applies cleanly to the other files I'm going to try and
update the btree code for it tonight.
