Antoine Pitrou commented on ARROW-2400:
---------------------------------------

The change doesn't seem to make any difference with MSVC 19.13 (VS 2017 
Community Edition).

> [C++] Status destructor is expensive
> ------------------------------------
>
>                 Key: ARROW-2400
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ARROW-2400
>             Project: Apache Arrow
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 0.9.0
>            Reporter: Antoine Pitrou
>            Priority: Major
>
> Let's take the following micro-benchmark (in Python):
> {code:bash}
> $ python -m timeit -s "import pyarrow as pa; data = [b'xx' for i in 
> range(10000)]" "pa.array(data, type=pa.binary())"
> 1000 loops, best of 3: 784 usec per loop
> {code}
> If I replace the Status destructor with a no-op:
> {code:c++}
>   ~Status() { }
> {code}
> then the benchmark result becomes:
> {code:bash}
> $ python -m timeit -s "import pyarrow as pa; data = [b'xx' for i in 
> range(10000)]" "pa.array(data, type=pa.binary())"
> 1000 loops, best of 3: 561 usec per loop
> {code}
> This is almost a 30% win. I get similar results on the conversion benchmarks 
> in the benchmark suite.
> I'm unsure about the explanation. In the common case, {{delete _state}} 
> should be extremely fast, since the state is NULL. Yet, it seems it adds 
> significant overhead. Perhaps because of exception handling?
