----------------------------------------------

             Summary: Improve DBEs read performance by avoiding byte array deep copies for
key[] and value[]
                 Key: HBASE-10974
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-10974
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Scanners
    Affects Versions: 0.99.0
            Reporter: ramkrishna.s.vasudevan
            Assignee: ramkrishna.s.vasudevan
             Fix For: 0.99.0


As part of HBASE-10801, we  tried to reduce the copy of the value [] in forming the KV from
the DBEs. 
The keys required copying and this was restricting us in using Cells and always wanted to
copy to be done.
The idea here is to replace the key byte[] as ByteBuffer and create a consecutive stream of
the keys (currently the same byte[] is used and hence the copy).  Use offset and length to
track this key bytebuffer.
The copy of the encoded format to normal Key format is definitely needed and can't be avoided
but we could always avoid the deep copy of the bytes to form a KV and thus use cells effectively.
Working on a patch, will post it soon.
