Subject Re: Regarding TSVConnClose, Transformations and CacheWrite
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 09:58:58 GMT
Hi Alan,

Thanks for the reply.
If that is the case, how I handle the issue of freeing the memory.
>From the cache write complete event, I do a close call.
However both these close(null transform and cache close) are going to the null
transform handler instead of the cache close going to cache close handler.
There I am facing the issue of freeing the memory.

Also there is one more issue-
After the pluggin is loaded and I get a  read request, I perform a
cache read call.
There I decide based on response that if the previous cache write was
successful or not.
However if the cache read call is executed after the read call is
complete, then
I will always have to perform remaps. I am trying to avoid locks so
that there is less drop in performance.

Also the above scenario works in most of the cases in single server(ie
cache read call is complete before the control comes to read request
However when I have ATS cluster, the event starts misbehaving.

Any suggestions for correcting this behavior.
