Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2292) ByteBuffer Directory - allowing to store the index outside the heap

------------------------------------

Hi,

>> looks interesting as a replacement for RAMDirectory.

This class uses ByteBuffer, which has its overhead over simple byte[], though using the same
logic (if you verify it) can be used to improve the concurrency in RAMDirectory (just use
byte[[).

>> Your patch uses a "sun." internal package. If you want to do something similar to
MMapDirectory to release the buffer without waiting for GC, do it in the same way using reflection
like in MMapDirectory.

>From what I know, it was there in all JDKs I worked with (its like sun.misc.Unsafe). Have
you seen otherwise? If so, its a simple change (though I am not sure about the access control
thingy in MMapDirectory, its a performance killer, and caching of the Method(s) make sense).

> A byte buffer based directory with the benefit of being able to create direct byte buffer
thus storing the index outside the JVM heap.
