Proposal Of GSoC


There's two basic ideas in the patch.

  • Store the hash value instead of real key in the bucket.

We can keep more tuples in a bucket and reduce the index size. It also means all hash indexscans become lossy and have to be rechecked at the heap.

  • Keep the contents of each index page ordered by hash value and use binary instead of linear search to find the matching item(s) during an indexscan.


You can see Details About The Test for more information.
