Cache Store Batch Operations

Infinispan 9.1.x introduces batch write and delete operations for cache stores. The introduction of batching should greatly improve performance when utilising write-behind cache stores, using putAll operations and committing transactions in non-transactional stores.

CacheWriter Interface Additions

The CacheWriter interface has been extended so that it exposes two additional methods: deleteBatch and writeBatch.  For the sake of backwards compatibility a default implementation of these methods is provided, however if your cache store is able to utilise batching we strongly recommend you create your  own implementations. The additional methods and docs are show below: 

Updated Stores

Currently the JDBC, JPA, RocksDB and Remote stores have all been modified to take advantage of these latest changes.

Configuration Changes

As each store implementations has different batching capabilities, it was necessary to introduce a max-batch-size attribute to the AbstractStoreConfiguration. This attribute defines the maximum number of entries that should be included in a single batch operation to the store. If a value less than one is provided, then the underlying store implementation should not place a upper limit on the number of entries in a batch. 

Deprecated Attributes

Both TableManipulationConfiguration#batchSize and JpaStoreConfiguration#batchSize have been deprecated, as they serve the same purpose as AbstractStoreConfiguration#maxBatchSize.

Store Benchmark

To measure the impact of batch writes on Cache.putAll, we created a simple benchmark to compare the performance of Infinispan 9.1.1.Final (with batching) and 9.0.3.Final (without).  The benchmark consisted of 20 threads inserting 100000 cache entries as fast as possible into a cache via putAll; with each putAll operation containing 20 cache entries and the max-batch-size of each store being set to 20. The table below shows the average time taken for each store type after the benchmark was executed three times.

Store Type 9.0.3.Final 9.1.1-Final Latency Decrease

JdbcStringBasedStore

29368ms

2597ms

91.12%

JPAStore

30798ms

16640ms

45.97%

RocksDBStore

1164ms

209ms

82.04%

The benchmark results above clearly show that performance is increased dramatically when utilising batch updates at the store level.

Conclusions

Infinispan 9.1.x introduces batching capabilities to the CacheWriter interface in order to improve performance. If you currently utilise a custom cache store, we strongly recommend that you provide your own implementation of the delete and write batch methods. 

If you have any feedback on the CacheWriter changes, or would like to request some new features/optimisations, let us know via the forumissue tracker or the #infinispan channel onhttp://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=%23infinispan[ Freenode].

Infinispan 6.0.0.Alpha4 out with new CacheLoader/CacheWriter API!

Infinispan 6.0.0.Alpha4 is now with a few very important changes, particularly around cache stores. We’ve completely revamped the cache store/loader API to align it a bit better with JSR-107 (old CacheStore has become CacheWriter) and to simplify creation of new implementations. The new CacheLoader and CacheWriter should help implementors focus on the important operations and reduce the coding time. We’ve also created AdvancedCacheLoader and AdvancedCacheWriter in order to separate for bulk operations or purging for those implementations that wish optionally implement them. Expect a blog post from Mircea in the next few days providing many more details on this topic.

This new Infinispan version comes with other important goodies:

  • Rolling upgrades of a Infinsipan REST cluster

  • Support for Cache-Control headers for REST operations

  • Remote querying server modules and Hot Rod client update

  • REST and LevelDB stores added to Infinispan Server

  • KeyFilters can now be applied to Cache listeners

  • Allow Cache listener events to be invoked only on the primary data owner

For a complete list of features and fixes included in this release please refer to the release notes. Visit our downloads section to find the latest release and if you have any questions please check our forums, our mailing lists or ping us directly on IRC.

Cheers,

Galder
