> Improvements to BufferPool
> --------------------------
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-9468
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9468
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>            Reporter: Benedict
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 4.x
> Following up from CASSANDRA-8897, there are further improvements that can be 
> made to the BufferPool:
> # The common code paths can be made non-atomic.
> # The chunk pool can be turned into a Stack, instead of a Queue, to improve 
> the likelihood of cache presence
> # The chunk pool can be made processor-local, using e.g. 
> [https://github.com/OpenHFT/Java-Thread-Affinity]
> # We can support smaller allocations by creating micro-chunks within each 
> local pool, by allocating a single unit from the current chunk (or multiple 
> units if we're about to discard a chunk that is not fully utilised).
> #* It should be possible to generalise this approach to make the entire 
> allocation stack tiered, so that whenever you want a new chunk you go to the 
> parent chunk that is an order of magnitude larger, and allocate a small slice 
> (which you convert into a Chunk). Slices below a certain size can be taken 
> exclusive ownership of, and above a certain size they remain shared.
