Subject [jira] [Created] (HBASE-15063) Bug(s) in MultiByteBuf
Date Fri, 01 Jan 2016 11:31:39 GMT
deepankar created HBASE-15063:

             Summary: Bug(s) in MultiByteBuf
                 Key: HBASE-15063
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-15063
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: io, Performance
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: deepankar
            Priority: Blocker

In MutliByteBuff there are couple of inconsistencies, one is in the toBytes function where
the offset for copying in the initial element is not being reset with respect to the element
 public byte[] toBytes(int offset, int length) {
     byte[] output = new byte[length];
     int itemIndex = getItemIndex(offset);
     ByteBuffer item = this.items[itemIndex];
     // the offset has to be reset here to the items offset 
     // should be offset = offset - itemBeingPos[itemIndex]
     int toRead = item.limit() - offset;
     int destinationOffset = 0;
    .  .   .   .
Since there is already an existing function get to copy to an byte array it is better we reuse
the function here, I attached a patch with a corresponding unit test. (HBASE-XXXX.patch)

Another inconsistency I noticed is that there is lack of some consistency in using the position
marker of the bytebuffers passed, In the constructor we noting the beginning offsets of each
bytebuffer in the {{itemBeginPos}} array we are using these position markers in most of the
absolute index functions such as {{get(index)}}, {{put(index, byte)}}, {{toBytes}}, {{get(int,byte[],int,int)}}
to find the current item to access. There are two problems with this
# The array {{itemBeginPos}} is not being updated whenever there are some writes to internal
bytebuffers (remember {{itemBeginPos}} depends on the {{bytebuffer.position()}} of the internal
bytebuffers and the position marker is changed whenever some writes happen to bytebuffers)
# Also the position marker is not being used in any of the index functions for example here
in the get function
  public byte get(int index) {
    int itemIndex = getItemIndex(index);
    return ByteBufferUtils.toByte(this.items[itemIndex], index - this.itemBeginPos[itemIndex]);
where the the index I think should be {{index - this.itemBeginPos\[itemIndex\] + items\[itemIndex\].position()}}
because we are using the position marker to calculate the offsets.

There are two solutions I think for this 
# The simple solution I feel for this should be probably ignoring the position marker while
calculating the {{itemBeginPos}} array which will unify the semantics 
# Not use this array at all and iterate over bytebuffers every time for the {{getItemIndex}}
function and also use the position marker before calling the {{ByteBufferUtils}} functions

I can put up a patch for the second part if we decide which way to go.
