Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-114) MicroKernel API: specify retention policy for old revisions
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2012 08:30:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13406910#comment-13406910

Dominique Pfister commented on OAK-114:

The javadoc is possibly not clear enough: a revision returned by getHeadRevision remains accessible
for _at least_ 10 minutes or _even longer_ if it is still the head revision, regardless of
the time it was committed. So in Jukka's snippet above, the getNodes call wouldn't fail, because
only 10 minutes passed.

Anyway, I think we really need some performance figures first, before we can decide whether
this policy is too aggressive. OTOH, the current GC logic is quite small and straightforward,
so it shouldn't be difficult to change it at a later time if need arises.
