Syntax-Based Query Rewriter, Code Drop #1496
- pattern - rule - ruleset - group - groupexpression - binding - memo - optimize_context - optimizer_task (TopDownRewrite/BottomUpRewrite) Templates generally followed: template <class Node, class OperatorType, class OperatorExpr> The template instantiation associated with: Node = Operator, OperatorType = OpType, OperatorExpr = OperatorExpression is used primarily by the core Optimizer. All references to the templated files/classes from core optimizer files were instantiated to that. Note worth mentioning: Operator class defines a public interface wrapper around BaseOperatorNode, basically defines a single logical/physical operator. OpType class defines the various logical/physical operations OperatorExpression class is essentially a tree of Operator
Possibly annoying problems w.r.t Peloton/terrier: (1) Use of unique_ptr/raw pointer as opposed to shared_ptr in AbstractExpression (2) AbstractExpression equality comparison method Additional components needed: - Dynamic/template/strategy rule evaluation (particularly comparison) - Repeated/multi-level application of rules - Layer to convert from memo -> AbstractExpression - Some refactoring w.r.t templated code - Better AbsExpr_Container/Expression indirection layer (intended to present a similar interface exposed by Operator/OperatorExpression relied upon by core logic) - Proper memory management strategy (tightly coupled to problem #1)
What still doesn't work/don't care about yet/not done - proper memory management (terrier uses shared_ptr anyways) - other 1-level rewrites, multi-layer rewrites, other expr rewrites - how can we define a grammar to programmatically create these rewrites? (the one we have is way too static...) - in relation to logical equivalence: (1) how do we generate logically equivalent expressions: - multi-pass using generating rules (similar to ApplyRule) OR - from Pattern A, generate logically equivalent set of patterns P OR - transform input expression to match certain specification OR - ??? (2) what operators do we support translating? - probably (a AND b) ====> (b AND a) - probably (a OR b) ====> (b OR a) - probably (a = b) ====> (b = a) - maybe more??? (3) do we want multi level translations? - i.e (a AND b) AND c ====> (a AND (b AND c)) - what order do we do these in? May have to modify these operations: - Some assertions in TopDownRewrite/BottomUpRewrite w.r.t to the iterator - Possibly binding.cpp / optimizer_metadata.h / optimizer_task.cpp Issues still pending: - Comparing Values (Matt email/discussion) - r.rule->Check (terrier issue #332)
AbstractNode will provide interface for Operator and eventually AbstractExpressions as well. Note there are a few road blocks before the rest of the rewriter can be changed to cleanly use abstract classes: (1) Similarly abstract OperatorExpressions. (2) We will have to find a good place to hide OpType, which is currently an enum type (cannot be abstracted) and pervades the code base. This may be solved by abstracting at the group level, but will have to look into it. (3) Need to clean up and separate interfaces between AbstractNode, OperatorNode, and Operator classes.
Still need to make fixes to Pattern to support both OpType and ExpType without templatizing. Will also need to clean up code after before build will work.
