Subject IgfsPerBlockLruEvictionPolicy does not work as expected any more, what shall we do with it?
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 16:57:19 GMT
Hi, colleagues,

as Ignite caches moved to paged offheap memory , the
IgfsPerBlockLruEvictionPolicy does not seem to work as expected any more,
1) interface org.apache.ignite.cache.eviction.EvictionPolicy now only
defines "eviction from on-heap", not a real eviction, because each on-heap
cache is now accompanied with underlying off-heap cache. It can become
"real eviction" only for "on-heap-only" mode caches, once they get
2) for off-heap eviction an entire page is evicted, not a specific k-v
pair, and LRU policy is not exactly LRU any more (see
org.apache.ignite.configuration.DataPageEvictionMode#RANDOM_LRU). So, it
appears to be impossible to re-implement this policy for the off-heap layer.

Thus, now IgfsPerBlockLruEvictionPolicy is not quite valid, and some of
corresponding tests fail

So, the options I see are:
1) deprecate/remove IgfsPerBlockLruEvictionPolicy ;
2) leave it as is, but explain in javadocs that it only works for on-heap
layer, that does not in fact evict  blocks from the underlying offheap

Please share your opinions.
