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.

The code is available on GitHub . Then, all what has to be done is to start from the position of this initial bucket and to scan through the next H-1 buckets, and for each bucket, to compare the key with the key of the entry being searched. From the hashed key only, it is possible to find for any entry the position of its initial bucket using the modulo operator.
Hopscotch hashing is interesting because it guarantees a small number of hashung to find entries. From there, the neighborhood to which the entry belongs can be determined, which is the initial bucket that was just derived and the next H-1 buckets. References  Submission draft for Hopscotch Hashing by Herlihy et at.
After contemplating a while, I have come to the conclusion that Hopscotch is just a bad version of Robin Hood Hashing. It is important to understand that the relationship between an entry and its neighborhood is reversed in the shadow representation compared to the bitmap and linked-list representations.
To speed the search, each bucket array entry includes a “hop-information” word, an Hopscltch -bit bitmap that indicates which of the next H-1 entries contain items that hashed to the current entry’s virtual bucket. From there, simply calling the program with the –help parameter gives a full description of the options available: Hlpscotch bit in that bitmap indicates if the current hashig or one of its following H-1 buckets are holding an entry which belongs to the neighborhood of the current bucket.

The first one is using one bitmap per bucket, and the second one is using a linked list per bucket. You are right, the code for the Get method in ShadowHashMap is checking every single bucket in the neighborhood. This proof may create a misunderstanding, hashjng is that the load factor can increase to very high values because hashinb hashing will prevent clustering. If no empty bucket is found, the insertion algorithm is terminated automatically after it has inspected a predetermined number of buckets.
Russell A Brown permalink. Retrieved from ” https: Conclusion This was just a short presentation of hopscotch hashing. Starting at 4, the size of the neighborhood would be doubling until it reaches In spite of the clustering effect that was observed, the guarantee offered by hopscotch hashing of having a bounded number of look-ups in contiguous memory is very compelling.

Very Fast HashMap in C++: Hopscotch & Robin Hood Hashing (Part 1)
Wikipedia has a nice representation: Once we have the hoopscotch, we can use it as clever as robin hood hashing does: When using open addressing with only a probing sequence and no reordering, entries are inserted in the first empty hopacotch found in the sequence. How many buckets to inspect prior to termination is an open question. Proceedings of the 22nd international symposium on Distributed Computing.
It has one entry in its neighborhood, stored in bucket 6.
Finding the initial bucket from a hashed key requires the use of the modulo operator. An entry will respect the hopscotch guarantee if it can be found in the neighborhood of its initial bucket, i.
Toggle navigation Martin Ankerl. Storing the hashed keys is frequently required. This being said, I still find the hopscotch hashing algorithm to be interesting, and it totally deserves to be implemented and tested.
Software and thoughts by Emmanuel Goossaert. Say we want to check if b is in the map:.
The bitmap for bucket 5 is thereforewith a bit set to 1 at index 1, because bucket 6 is at an offset of 1 from bucket 5. Implementation Variants Part 3: Neighborhood representations In the hqshing paper, two representations of the neighborhoods were covered . Even by scanning only 1 out of 5 or 6 buckets in a neighborhood, the number of cache lines that would be loaded in the L1 cache would be roughly the same for all neighborhood representations, and there would be little difference in performance between them assuming byte L1 cache lines.
