Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2911) Implement a buffer manager using java.util.concurrent classes
Date Thu, 27 Sep 2007 12:05:53 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2911?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-2911:

    Attachment: d2911-6.stat

Attaching a new patch (d2911-6.diff) which implements a replacement algorithm using the interface
and synchronization model described in the previous comments. The main part of the patch is
the new ClockPolicy class and its rotateClock() method. I have done my best to state all requirements
about synchronization and lock order in comments, so I hope it is possible for others to understand
the code...

I manually edited modules.properties to enable the new buffer manager and ran the full regression
test suite. suites.All ran successfully, whereas derbyall had one failure. The failure in
derbyall was unit/T_RawStoreFactory.unit which has been mentioned before. This is an expected
failure until reuse of invalid entries has been enabled for caches whose size is smaller than
the maximum size.

I have not run any performance tests on this last patch, but I will do so. The performance
test attached to this issue doesn't test the replacement algorithm since it creates just a
small database. I will therefore see if I can run some other tests with different buffer sizes
and also test it with update load, for instance using the test client attached to DERBY-1961.

What's left to do:
  - reuse Cacheable from invalid entries instead of growing the clock when size < maxSize
(will fix the failure in unit/T_RawStoreFactory.unit)
  - implement a background cleaner
  - shrink the cache if it exceeds the maximum size

> There are indications that the buffer manager is a bottleneck for some types of multi-user
load. For instance, Anders Morken wrote this in a comment on DERBY-1704: "With a separate
table and index for each thread (to remove latch contention and lock waits from the equation)
we (...) found that org.apache.derby.impl.services.cache.Clock.find()/release() caused about
5 times more contention than the synchronization in LockSet.lockObject() and LockSet.unlock().
That might be an indicator of where to apply the next push".
> It would be interesting to see the scalability and performance of a buffer manager which
exploits the concurrency utilities added in Java SE 5.
