Subject [jira] [Commented] (CRUNCH-368) TupleWritable.Comparator
Date Sun, 23 Mar 2014 15:07:43 GMT


Chao Shi commented on CRUNCH-368:

This patch adds one (most likely) or more bytes for the size of each field. The down side
is that this may increase the number of spills. From the number shown in above benchmark,
this trade off sounds like a win in even such a case where the tuple is small. The improvement
should be more effective when the tuple is larger and not all fields are actually needed for

> This patch should improve comparison performance on TupleWritables. It saves the deserialization
overhead. It is particularly useful when the input tuple are large, e.g. contains long strings.
> Please note that this changes the binary format of TupleWritable. It adds a var-int indicating
size of field after each type code. This is a limitation of the writable system. We do not
know the size of each field until fully desalinizing it.
