Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-333) 1000 character path limit in MongoMK
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 10:21:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-333?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13526282#comment-13526282

Thomas Mueller commented on OAK-333:

Indexing the hash of the path would be very bad for performance, because it would cause nodes
that are logically close to each other (have a similar path) to be distributed over the whole
(possibly sharded) repository. See also  

Shard Keys:
http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/core/sharding-internals/#sharding-internals-shard-keys :

Query Isolation:
"The fastest queries in a sharded environment are those that mongos will route to a single

Now, let's assume we use the hash code of the path as the shard key (and not the path). If
we do that, each query to retrieve a number of nodes with a given depth (let's say depth 3)
will have to first read the parent node, then for each child node read the child node, and
so on. That's almost n queries (where n is the number of returned nodes)!

When using the path as the shared key, it's just one query (path like '/.../%' and depth between
3 and 6), which is routed to just one shard normally, because all nodes are stored in the
same shard.

> In an infinite loop try to add nodes one under another to have N0/N1/N2...NN. At some
point, the current parent node will not be found and the current commit will fail. I think
this happens when the path length exceeds 1000 characters. Is this enough for a path? I was
able to create this way only 222 levels in the tree (and my node names were really short N1,
N2 ...)
> There's an automated tests for this: NodeExistsCommandMongoTest.testTreeDepth
