Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3867) RamUsageEstimator.NUM_BYTES_ARRAY_HEADER and other constants are incorrect
Date Sat, 17 Mar 2012 22:12:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3867?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13232082#comment-13232082

Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-3867:
-------------------------------------

Oh, one thing that springs to my mind is that we could have an automatically generated class
with nested static classes with a random arrangement of all sorts of fields (in all sorts
of configurations) and use a similar empirical benchmark to the one I did on small byte arrays
but on these objects. This would show if we're estimating object field offsets and sizes correctly.


I wouldn't go into deep object structures though -- I've tried this and it's hard to tell
what the allocation is and what the overhead/ noise of measurement is.

> RamUsageEstimator.NUM_BYTES_ARRAY_HEADER is computed like that: NUM_BYTES_OBJECT_HEADER
+ NUM_BYTES_INT + NUM_BYTES_OBJECT_REF. The NUM_BYTES_OBJECT_REF part should not be included,
at least not according to this page: http://www.javamex.com/tutorials/memory/array_memory_usage.shtml

> A single-dimension array is a single object. As expected, the array has the usual object
header. However, this object head is 12 bytes to accommodate a four-byte array length. Then
comes the actual array data which, as you might expect, consists of the number of elements
multiplied by the number of bytes required for one element, depending on its type. The memory
usage for one element is 4 bytes for an object reference ...

> While on it, I wrote a sizeOf(String) impl, and I wonder how do people feel about including
such helper methods in RUE, as static, stateless, methods? It's not perfect, there's some
room for improvement I'm sure, here it is:
> {code}
> 	/**
> 	 * Computes the approximate size of a String object. Note that if this object
> 	 * is also referenced by another object, you should add
> 	 * {@link RamUsageEstimator#NUM_BYTES_OBJECT_REF} to the result of this
> 	 * method.
> 	 */
> 	public static int sizeOf(String str) {
> 		return 2 * str.length() + 6 // chars + additional safeness for arrays alignment
> 				+ 3 * RamUsageEstimator.NUM_BYTES_INT // String maintains 3 integers
> 				+ RamUsageEstimator.NUM_BYTES_ARRAY_HEADER // char[] array
> 				+ RamUsageEstimator.NUM_BYTES_OBJECT_HEADER; // String object
> 	}
> {code}
> If people are not against it, I'd like to also add sizeOf(int[] / byte[] / long[] / double[]
... and String[]).
