Subject [jira] [Commented] (HAMA-559) Add a spilling message queue
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2012 16:39:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAMA-559?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13485467#comment-13485467

Suraj Menon commented on HAMA-559:
----------------------------------

Thanks Thomas for the comments. I had not tested the wrapper and probably not initializing
the spilling buffer correctly. I would reproduce the state you got and fix it. 
I did some profiling with the SpillingBuffer.java. Please check the attachments. I am not
happy with the heap graph. Have to understand what is happening there. 
I shall incorporate the changes suggested and test the wrapper and add unit tests in my next
patch. Apurv, I have not looked deeply into EhCache code yet, I shall answer after I know
the differences. :)

> After HAMA-521 is done, we can add a spilling queue which just holds the messages in
RAM that fit into the heap space. The rest can be flushed to disk.
> We may call this a HybridQueue or something like that.
> The benefits should be that we don't have to flush to disk so often and get faster. However
we may have more GC so it is always overall faster.
> The requirements for this queue also include:
> - The message object once written to the queue (after returning from the write call)
could be modified, but the changes should not be reflected in the messages stored in the queue.
> - For now let's implement a queue that does not support concurrent reading and writing.
This feature is needed when we implement asynchronous communication.
