Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-3928) Some potential performance improvements to Bytes/KeyValue
Date Mon, 13 Jun 2011 04:35:51 GMT

Todd Lipcon commented on HBASE-3928:
------------------------------------

I ran some single-node benchmarks on my laptop. It doesn't seem to make a significant difference
either way. Since logic says it should help, may as well commit it - certainly doesn't make
things worse.

> We use Bytes.compareTo() a lot where we could be using a more efficient equals() method.
The trick that makes equals() faster than compareTo is that we can short-circuit two common
cases:
> Case 1) the length is not the same - only need to do one comparison
> Case 2) the two arrays have the same length and a common prefix: compare the last byte
first, since it's the one most likely to differ (given we are usually comparing adjacent sorted
data).
