Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6287) Add vecsum test of libhdfs read access times
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 21:08:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-6287?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13988246#comment-13988246

Chris Nauroth commented on HDFS-6287:
-------------------------------------

Hi, Colin.  Thanks for posting this.  Did you find that you needed to use SSE to get the addition
fast enough so that the benchmark highlights read throughput instead of sum computation? 
IOW, could we potentially simplify this patch to not use SSE at all and still have a valid
benchmark?

I think it would be helpful to add a comment with a high-level summary of what vecsum does,
maybe right before the {{main}}.

I have one minor comment on the code itself so far.  I think you can remove the {{hdfsFreeBuilder}}
call.  {{hdfsBuilderConnect}} always frees the builder, whether it succeeds or fails.  The
only time you would need to call {{hdfsFreeBuilder}} directly is if you allocated a builder
but then never attempted to connect with it.  I don't see any way for that to happen in the
{{libhdfs_data_create}} code.

> Add vecsum, a benchmark that tests libhdfs access times.  This includes short-circuit,
zero-copy, and standard libhdfs access modes.  It also has a local filesystem mode for comparison.
