Compaction priority in RocksDB
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Compaction priority is an option in RocksDB that determines the next file to select for compaction. Here I show the impact of this option on the amount of storage writes while running Linkbench. The right value can reduce the amount of data written to storage which improves storage efficiency and can make an SSD device last longer.

The Linkbench schema has 3 tables with 4 indexes. Each of …

  • The size of a file is the number of bytes it will deliver if it is read sequentially from start to end.
  • The space it takes up is the sum of all disk pages which are used to hold the file's data, or to locate those data pages ("indirect" blocks in Unix/Linux terminology).

Every Unix/Linux admin knows (or at least should know) that a file …
