Subject [jira] [Commented] (HIVE-4423) Improve RCFile::sync(long) 10x
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2013 18:59:51 GMT


Gopal V commented on HIVE-4423:

Good catch [~taguswang], it is in fact missing 1 byte at the end.

Please log a new bug & assign it to me - I will fix this and add an extra test-case for
this off-by-one error.

> RCFile::sync(long) takes approx ~1 second everytime it gets called because of the inner
loops in the function.
> From what was observed with HDFS-4710, single byte reads are an order of magnitude slower
than larger 512 byte buffer reads. 
> Even when disk I/O is buffered to this size, there is overhead due to the synchronized
read() methods in BlockReaderLocal & RemoteBlockReader classes.
> Removing the readByte() calls in RCFile.sync(long) with a readFully(512 byte) call will
speed this function >10x.
