map.containsKey() does not reset idle time counter #288

The 2.3 documentation mentions this for map:

            Maximum number of seconds for each entry to stay idle in the map. Entries that are
            idle(not touched) for more than <max-idle-seconds> will get
            automatically evicted from the map.
            Entry is touched if get, put or containsKey is called.
            Any integer between 0 and Integer.MAX_VALUE.
            0 means infinite. Default is 0.

Though it says that "Entry is touched if containsKey is called", this doesn't seem to happen. In my usage scenario I need to store the entry if it doesn't exist and reset the idle time counter if it exists. Currently I am doing:

if (map.get(key) == null) {
  map.set(key, value, 0L, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

Since I am not making use of the value returned by map.get() in this case map.containsKey() would possibly give me better throughput:

if (!map.containsKey(key)) {
  map.set(key, value, 0L, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

If this is a code issue then am I correct in saying that this is a small fix inside

    public boolean containsKey(Request req) {
        Record record = getRecord(req);
        if (record == null) {
            return false;
        } else {
            if (record.isActive() && record.isValid()) {
+               record.setLastAccessed();
                return record.valueCount() > 0;
        return false;

Hi mdogan,

A unit test to go with the fix in

    public void testContainsKeyUpdatesLastAccessTime() throws Exception {
        Config config = new Config();
        FactoryImpl mockFactory = mock(FactoryImpl.class);
        // we mocked the node
        // do not forget to shutdown the connectionManager
        // so that server socket can be released.
        Node node = new Node(mockFactory, config);
        node.serviceThread = Thread.currentThread();
        CMap cmap = new CMap(node.concurrentMapManager, "c:myMap");
        Object key = "1";
        Object value = "istanbul";
        Data dKey = toData(key);
        Data dValue = toData(value);
        cmap.put(newPutRequest(dKey, dValue));
        Record record = cmap.getRecord(dKey);
        long firstAccessTime = record.getLastAccessTime();
        assertTrue(cmap.containsKey(newContainsRequest(dKey, null)));
        record = cmap.getRecord(dKey);
        long secondAccessTime = record.getLastAccessTime();
        assertTrue("record access time should have been updated on containsKey()", secondAccessTime > firstAccessTime);
