Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7761) Improve performance of raw comparisons
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2011 16:44:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7761?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13132812#comment-13132812

Doug Cutting commented on HADOOP-7761:
--------------------------------------

We could add <showWarnings>false</showWarnings> to the maven-compiler-plugin configuration
in pom.xml for code that generates warnings that we cannot disable, placing such code in a
separate module for this purpose...

> Guava has a nice implementation of lexicographical byte-array comparison that uses sun.misc.Unsafe
to compare unsigned byte arrays long-at-a-time. Their benchmarks show it as being 2x more
CPU-efficient than the equivalent pure-Java implementation. We can easily integrate this into
WritableComparator.compareBytes to improve CPU performance in the shuffle.
