  • Writing a concurrent LRU cache
    11 projects | /r/rust | 10 Dec 2021
    Ya, I saw concache but I looked into it and it doesn't implement what is needed. Each bucket has its own linked-list backing (hence "lock-free linked list buckets"). An LRU needs each value in each bucket to be part of one linked list I believe. After posting this I realized my line of research was failing because it was state of the art five years ago. Caffeine replaced `concurrentlinkedhashmap` in the java world (by the same author). A rust version of that is Moka. These are much more complicated than a concurrent LRU but faster (aka more state of the art). Another rust crate is Stretto which is a port of dgraph's Ristretto (in go). The question becomes is it worth it to essentially port `concurrentlinkedhashmap` to have a great concurrent LRU when there are more state of the art caches out there.

    For the case in the benches folder(a very roughly bench case), stretto is around 20 - 30 ms(sync version is around 30 - 40 ms) faster than moka, for 120, 000+ operations. I set stretto to collect metrics when benching, collecting metrics will make around 10% overhead. Moka seems not to provide a configuration to collect the metrics, so the hit-ratio is not compared.

    6 projects | /r/rust | 13 Apr 2022 not good enough ?

    no i dont think so, it seems abandoned possibly, it also makes some pretty basic mistakes imo like this issue someone just opened up its also missing some commands
