Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-1218) Implement in-memory column
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2009 00:08:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-1218?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12725856#action_12725856

Jonathan Gray commented on HBASE-1218:

The LRU in trunk now supports in-memory blocks.

In HFile.Reader.readBlock(int) we need to change cache.cacheBlock(blockName, blockBuf) to
cache.cacheBlock(blockName, blockBuf, boolean inMemory).

HFile.Reader gets instantiated from within a Store so should be easy enough to pass something
in from the family configuration there.

I strongly recommend lazy-loading, no pre-fetching of blocks.  That's how they do it in big
table.  If you want to warm the blocks, just scan the table.

> HCD already talks of in-memory columns; its just not implemented.  With hfile this should
now be possible -- if set, read in the whole storefile and serve from the blockbuffer.
