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.

But this is not the case. Home About Me Keto Calculator. From the hashed key only, it is possible to find for any entry the position of its initial bucket using the modulo operator. What it appears hsahing that with neighborhoods of size 64, the load factor at which clustering prevents inserting is around 0.

Consequently, the empty bucket E can be swapped with any of the preceding H-1 entries that have the nopscotch of E in their neighborhoods. The main idea behind hopscotch hashing is that each bucket has a neighborhood of size H. This representation was not part of the original paper, this is just an idea that I wanted to experiment with.

Overview Hopscotch hashing was introduced by Hopscohch et al. Indeed, for the bitmap representation, the neighborhood of a bucket is determined using the bitmap stored with that bucket.

This distinguishes it from linear probing which leaves the empty slot where it was found, possibly far away from the original bucket, or from cuckoo hashing that, in order to create a free bucket, moves an item out of one of the desired buckets in the target arrays, and only then tries to find the displaced item a new place. Neighborhood representations In the original paper, two representations of the neighborhoods were covered [2].

Source code Talk is cheap. The size of the bitmaps could be increased, but that would mean that the size of each bucket would be increased, which at some point would make the whole bucket array explode in memory. The offset at index 6 is 0: I have only performed limited experiments, and not a thorough statistical study. But in the end, my feeling is that with a densely filled hopscotch-hashing table, the exact neighborhood representation would not matter.


At this point, the state of the hash table is as shown prior to Step 1 in Figure 3. From there, simply calling the program with the –help parameter gives a full description of the options available: Part of hashihg efficiency is due to using a linear probe only hopdcotch find an empty slot during insertion, not for every lookup as in the original linear probing hash table algorithm.

Another idea that I wanted to haahing was to have variable neighborhood sizes. For a perfectly full hashmap, where each bucket contains a corresponding entry, of the 32 hop bits there will be just a single bit that is set to 1.

hlpscotch Since the buckets in a same neighborhood will be found at a bounded distance, at most H-1small integers can be used to store offsets instead of larger and more costly addresses, which can save up a lot of memory.

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. I found a typing error in the last part of the second line in section 2.

This page was last edited on 6 Octoberat Further investigation should also be aimed at comparing constant-neighborhood and variable-neighborhood approaches, to see if they differ in metrics such as the average and maximum probing sequences.

Hopscotch hashing

Bucket 0 is the initial bucket, and bucket 11 is the empty bucket found by linear probing. In this section I am trying to shed light on a downside from the original paper. However, this does not prevent multiple buckets to cluster the overlapping area of their respective neighborhoods.


In the paper, one of the proofs states: Storing the hashed keys is frequently required.

How about just storing the offsets next to the buckets? Due to the hopsotch method, an entry may not be in the bucket it was hashed to, its initial bucket, but most likely in a bucket in the neighborhood of its initial bucket. With this solution, each bucket needs a bitmap in addition to all the data already needed for that bucket.

Implementation Variants Part 3: Instead, I am presenting the insertion process of hopscotch hashing with a diagram, in Figure 1 below. If you enforced the same max distance from the original bucket as for the bitmap, i. Toggle navigation Martin Ankerl. We found the element. Assuming deletions have occurred in the table, if you have two buckets X and Y in the same linked list with a link from X to Y, there is no guarantee that Y will be stored uashing an address higher than X, and indeed, Y could be at an address lower than X.

In the original paper, two representations of the neighborhoods were hopscoych [2]. After spending some time optimizing, I am mostly happy with the results.

Then a second search begins at bucket 6 in order to find a bucket whose initial bucket is less than or equal to 5.

For each bucket, its neighborhood is a small collection of nearby consecutive buckets i.
