Subject [jira] [Created] (HIVE-7144) GC pressure during ORC StringDictionary writes
Date Thu, 29 May 2014 20:57:01 GMT

             Summary: GC pressure during ORC StringDictionary writes 
                 Key: HIVE-7144
             Project: Hive
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: File Formats
    Affects Versions: 0.14.0
         Environment: ORC Table ~ 12 string columns
            Reporter: Gopal V
            Assignee: Gopal V
         Attachments: orc-string-write.png

When ORC string dictionary writes data out, it suffers from bad GC performance due to a few
allocations in-loop.


The conversions are as follows

StringTreeWriter::getStringValue() causes 2 conversions

LazyString -> Text (LazyString::getWritableObject)
Text -> String (LazyStringObjectInspector::getPrimitiveJavaObject)

Then StringRedBlackTree::add() does one conversion

String -> Text

This causes some GC pressure with un-necessary String and byte[] array allocations.
