Fluo Tour: Fetching multiple cells

Tour page 15 of 26

Each call to get a row column results in a RPC to an Accumulo server. In the cases where there are many row columns to get, Fluo provides more specialized get methods that make less RPC calls.

Below is some example code that illustrates using these methods and shows the performance difference. The example code performs the following task.

Below is the code to perform the task mentioned above.

  private static void excercise(MiniFluo mini, FluoClient client) {

    Set<Column> columns = new LinkedHashSet<>();

    for(int c = 0; c < 100; c++) {
      columns.add(new Column("f", String.format("q%04d", c)));
    }

    try(Transaction tx = client.newTransaction()) {
      int value = 0;
      for(int r = 0; r < 100; r++) {
        String row = String.format("r%04d", r);
        for (Column column : columns) {
          tx.set(row, column, value+"");
          value++;
        }
      }

      tx.commit();
    }

    //fetch multiple columns from a single row
    try(Snapshot snap = client.newSnapshot()) {
      String row = String.format("r%04d", 42);

      long t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      for (Column column : columns) {
        snap.gets(row, column);
      }

      long t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      snap.gets(row, columns);

      long t3 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      System.out.printf("test1 time 1:%d  time2:%d\n",(t2-t1),(t3-t2));
    }


    //fetch the same columns from multiple rows
    try(Snapshot snap = client.newSnapshot()) {
      List<String> rows = Arrays.asList(String.format("r%04d", 42),
                                        String.format("r%04d", 21),
                                        String.format("r%04d", 84));

      long t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      for (String row : rows) {
        for (Column column : columns) {
          snap.gets(row, column);
        }
      }

      long t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      snap.gets(rows, columns);

      long t3 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      System.out.printf("test2 time 1:%d  time2:%d\n",(t2-t1),(t3-t2));
    }

    //fetch different columns from different rows
    try(Snapshot snap = client.newSnapshot()) {
      Random rand = new Random();
      //generate the row columns to fetch
      List<RowColumn> rowcols = new ArrayList<>();
      for(int i = 0; i < 100; i++) {
        String row = String.format("r%04d", rand.nextInt(100));
        Column col = new Column("f", String.format("q%04d", rand.nextInt(100)));
        rowcols.add(new RowColumn(row, col));
      }

      long t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      for (RowColumn rowColumn : rowcols) {
        snap.get(rowColumn.getRow(), rowColumn.getColumn());
      }

      long t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      snap.gets(rowcols);

      long t3 = System.currentTimeMillis();

      System.out.printf("test3 time 1:%d  time2:%d\n",(t2-t1),(t3-t2));
    }
  }

The program above outputs :

test1 time 1:294  time2:13
test2 time 1:651  time2:25
test3 time 1:153  time2:7
