How Bloom Filters Work in MyRocks

Percona

Bloom filters are an essential component of an LSM-based database engine like MyRocks. This post will illustrate through a simple example how bloom filters work in MyRocks. Why? With MyRocks/RocksDB, data is stored in a set of large SST files. When MyRocks needs to find the value associated with a given key, it uses a bloom filter to guess if the key could potentially be in an SST file.
