Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4732) Speed up AvroSerde by checking hashcodes instead of equality
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2013 19:44:20 GMT


Edward Capriolo commented on HIVE-4732:

We can not use hashCode() where equals() should be use. It is non-intuitive. Just because
two things have the same hashCode() does not mean that they are equal. Future versions may
not work the same way.

How about something like this:

if this.hashCode == other.hashCode && this.equals(other) {


In this way you still get the short circuit optimized behavior you want for performance for
most cases, but the logic is still correct if a hashCode collision happens.

> The AvroSerde spends a significant amount of time checking schema equality. Changing
to compare hashcodes (which can be computed once then reused) will improve performance.
