Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-5598) Implement a pure Java CRC32 calculator
Date Sun, 14 Jun 2009 07:52:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5598?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Todd Lipcon updated HADOOP-5598:

    Attachment: TestCrc32Performance.java

Attached is a new version that is a hybrid implementation. For writes smaller than a threshold
it calculates CRC32 natively. Above the threshold, it uses the java.util.zip implementation,
which it folds back in lazily using crc32_combine ported from zlib.

On the old TestCrc32Performance benchmark, this version was always faster or as fast as "theirs".
I added a new benchmark test which sizes the writes randomly, on which the hybrid version
is awful in certain cases since it spends most of its time in crc32_combine. For this hybrid
model to work, there will need to be some kind of hysteresis when switching between implementations,
so as to avoid crc32_combine.

If someone has Java 1.6 update 14 handy, I'd be interested to see if the new array bounds
checking elimination optimization makes the pure Java fast enough to completely replace java.util.zip's.

> We've seen a reducer writing 200MB to HDFS with replication = 1 spending a long time
in crc calculation. In particular, it was spending 5 seconds in crc calculation out of a total
of 6 for the write. I suspect that it is the java-jni border that is causing us grief.
