Subject Size of KeyValue
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2011 23:40:44 GMT
Looking at KeyValue I see three variable purely used for caching:
timestampCache(long), rowCache(byte[]), and keyLength(int).

>From a quick glance over the code I do not see many spots where we repeatedly get the
TS, rowKey, of keyLength from the same KV.
Together these consume 24 bytes (almost 1/2 of KeyValue's constant memory overhead) on every
key value created, and we create
a *lot* KVs (real and "fake" ones) during scanning and seeking.

Were these added to address specific performance concerns? If not, we might consider removing
