Redo log, fsync A redo log with fsync on commit was used. It is possible for a SQL DBMS that uses a write-optimized database algorithm like TokuDB to do that without the read as long as there are no unique constraints and the result of modified rows doesn't have to be returned.
Our use cases for RocksDB have grown tremendously, and we have close to a petabyte of data across different applications being managed by RocksDB today.
Using a redo log with fsync has a big impact on performance. If the data is mixed in the same blocks, as with almost all systems today, any rewrites will require the SSD controller to garbage collect both the dynamic data which caused the rewrite initially and static data which did not require any rewrite.
One advantage is that the semantics it provides are simpler than a traditional DBMS.
With better compression, you can use less storage; and with less write-amplification, flash devices will last longer and you may be able to use lower-endurance flash devices. We saw that applications were not able to derive the full potential of the flash hardware because of data bandwidth bottleneck caused by LevelDB's high write-amplification.
Most LSMs, including MyRocks, use bloom filters to reduce the number of files to be checked during a point query.
The third enabled the redo log and did fsync on commit. The reason is as the data is written, the entire block is filled sequentially with data related to the same file.
Performance evaluations are hard. One example of the difference is the tuning that was required to make the MyRocks load performance match InnoDB when using fast storage. It will need only to be erased, which is much easier and faster than the read-erase-modify-write process needed for randomly written data going through garbage collection.
An LSM doesn't fragment. The portion of the user capacity which is free from user data either already TRIMed or never written in the first place will look the same as over-provisioning space until the user saves new data to the SSD. The reason is as the data is written, the entire block is filled sequentially with data related to the same file.
If the data is mixed in the same blocks, as with almost all systems today, any rewrites will require the SSD controller to garbage collect both the dynamic data which caused the rewrite initially and static data which did not require any rewrite.
An app that needs to query Hadoop in real time. New features are easier to add because the engine is simpler. Similarly, an application can plug in its own compaction filter to process keys during compaction.
A B-Tree wastes space when pages fragment.
With an SSD without integrated encryption, this command will put the drive back to its original out-of-box state. Typical workloads RocksDB is suitable for RocksDB can be used by applications that need low-latency database accesses. MyRocks has 2x better compression compared to compressed InnoDB, x better compression compared to uncompressed InnoDB, meaning you use less space.
Greater Writing Efficiency MyRocks has a 10x less write amplification compared to InnoDB, giving you better endurance of flash storage and improving overall throughput.

Nov 21, · RocksDB builds on LevelDB, Google's open source key value database library, to satisfy several goals: Scales to run on servers with many CPU cores. Uses fast storage efficiently. Is flexible to allow for innovation. Supports IO-bound, in-memory, and write-once workloads.
Write amplification When we estimate write amplification, we usually simplify the problem by assuming keys are uniformly distributed inside each level.
In reality, it is not the case, even if user updates are uniformly distributed across the whole key range. Optimizing Space Amplification in RocksDB.
CIDR By: Siying Dong, Mark Callaghan, Leonidas Galanis, Dhruba Borthakur, Tony Savor, Michael Stumm In particular, we optimize space efficiency while ensuring read and write latencies meet service-level requirements for the intended workloads.
This choice is motivated by the. • Open sourced RocksDB • Big success within Facebook • Write amplification = 5 * num_levels • Increase memtable and level 1 size • Stronger (zlib, zstd) compression for bottom levels • Try universal compaction Next steps.
