Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-965) Implement BlockCache using custom LRU/ARC mechanism rather than SoftReferences
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2008 03:49:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-965?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12643120#action_12643120

stack commented on HBASE-965:

Here's a python implementation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptive_Replacement_Cache. 
We should ask our friends at IBM what story is with Apache on patented material like this.

>                 Key: HBASE-965
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-965
>             Project: Hadoop HBase
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 0.19.0
>            Reporter: Jonathan Gray
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 0.19.0
> BlockCaching is now turned on by default as of HBASE-953.  This improves all-around performance
but is very taxing on the GC.  Random reading tends to thrash the cache.
> As discussed, rather than rely on JVM LRU GC, we should implement our own tracking of
cached blocks using an ARC-like algorithm.  This will also allow users to set the cache size
per-table or per-family rather than just taking from the allotted Heap pool.
