Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2779) Use ConcurrentHashMap in RAMDirectory
Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 07:05:10 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-2779:

bq. Doesn't look like a really important patch, that just has to be backported. 

Earwin, I did not *just* backport it. This time I deviated from my usual work habit, which
is changing 3x before trunk, because I did want to cause any mergeprops troubles. But in real
life, I work on and improve 3x, and back/forward port to trunk -- at least until trunk/4.0
release will be anywhere near sight. So for all intent and purposes, this improvement should
have gone into 3x, as far as I'm concerned. That that we have an issue w/ our backwards tests
layer (sent a separate email about it) is unrelated to the issue.

As a general practice though, I do not neglect 3x branch -- if something that I do can fit
there, I will put it there, whether it's a major performance improvement, or a minor house

> RAMDirectory synchronizes on its instance in many places to protect access to map of
RAMFiles, in addition to updating the sizeInBytes member. In many places the sync is done
for 'read' purposes, while only in few places we need 'write' access. This looks like a perfect
use case for ConcurrentHashMap
> Also, syncing around sizeInBytes is unnecessary IMO, since it's an AtomicLong ...
> I'll post a patch shortly.
