Subject [jira] [Commented] (PHOENIX-2417) Compress memory used by row key byte[] of guideposts
Date Tue, 22 Dec 2015 17:25:46 GMT


Ankit Singhal commented on PHOENIX-2417:

[~jamestaylor],is the compression suggested above possible with the new implementation of
stats table in PHOENIX-2143?

> We've found that smaller guideposts are better in terms of minimizing any increase in
latency for point scans. However, this increases the amount of memory significantly when caching
the guideposts on the client. Guidepost are equidistant row keys in the form of raw byte[]
which are likely to have a large percentage of their leading bytes in common (as they're stored
in sorted order. We should use a simple compression technique to mitigate this. I noticed
that Apache Parquet has a run length encoding - perhaps we can use that.
