We present a new class of resizable sequential and concurrent hash map algorithms directed at both uni-processor and multicore machines. The new hopscotch. I am currently experimenting with various hash table algorithms, and I stumbled upon an approach called hopscotch hashing. Hopscotch. We present a new resizable sequential and concurrent hash map algorithm directed at both uniprocessor and multicore machines. The algorithm is based on a.

As I am planning to implement other reordering schemes, I am keeping this analysis for a future article, when I will be done implementing all the other methods that I want to test.

Nevertheless, with this code Hopscoych was able to find out more about the practical behavior of hopscotch hashing, and some of the limitations that were not described in the original paper.

If the second option is true, this would mean hashng the experimental results presented in the paper were not obtained using hopscotch hashing, and therefore that the conclusions reached by this paper could not be taken seriously. In addition, those look-ups are in contiguous memory areas, which is very cache friendly. My intuition was that by starting with smaller neighborhood sizes, items would be more spatially localized, which would allow for higher load factors to be reached than with constant neighborhood sizes.

Then a second search begins at bucket 6 in order to find a bucket whose initial bucket is less than or equal to 5. If no empty bucket is found, the insertion algorithm is terminated automatically after it has inspected a predetermined number of buckets.

But no trace of displacements as described in the paper. How many buckets to inspect prior to termination is an open question.

If an empty bucket is found, the entry is saved there. But this is not the case. However, this does not prevent multiple buckets to cluster the overlapping area of their respective neighborhoods.

The deletion process is simple: The original paper was mostly focusing on multi-core and concurrent environments. This may come across as I am picking on the paper, but I am not, I am just pointing out something I find to be inconsistent.

First, a clear explanation of the insertion process is being given, which is independent from the representation of neighborhoods. If the key ho;scotch not match any of the keys for the entries in ohpscotch neighborhood of the initial bucket, then the entry is simply not in the table. The first search is confined to the neighborhood of bucket 3 and hence will terminate at or before bucket 6, given that the neighborhood size H equals 4. With this solution, each bucket needs a bitmap in addition to all the data already needed for that bucket.

Conclusion This was haehing a short presentation of hopscotch hashing. If the entry were saved there, subsequent trials to retrieve it would fail, because the search would be bounded to the neighborhood of B.

After contemplating a while, I have come to the conclusion that Hopscotch hopwcotch just a bad version of Robin Hood Hashing. Your email address will never be published. As a result, at most H consecutive look-ups will be required in contiguous memory locations, which is extremely cache friendly.


Software and thoughts by Emmanuel Goossaert. The desired property of the neighborhood is that the cost of finding an item in the buckets of the neighborhood is jopscotch to the cost of finding it in the bucket itself for example, by having buckets in the neighborhood fall within the same cache line. A Makefile is included and should simplify compilation.

In order to insert a new entry, its key is hashed to find the initial bucket for the entry, denoted as B.

Hopscotch Hashing

As the table fills up, this prevents the lookup method from doing many random reads on the secondary storage, which are costly. From what I understand from the code, it appears that putIfAbsent is just implementing a linear probing and that buckets are then linked together to prevent probing all buckets when calling containsKey.

That means at index 6 is an element that actually belongs there: Figure 3 In Figure 3, all the buckets in the area of the swap candidates are in the neighborhoods of buckets that are before the beginning of the swap area.

Retrieved from ” https: Indeed, for the linked-list implementation, it seems that the code of the paper does not have the hopscotch algorithm in the putIfAbsent method HopscotchHashMap.
