Method Detail

goodFastHash
public static HashFunction goodFastHash(int minimumBits)
Returns a generalpurpose, temporaryuse, noncryptographic hash function. The algorithm the returned function implements is unspecified and subject to change without notice.Warning: a new random seed for these functions is chosen each time the
Hashing
class is loaded. Do not use this method if hash codes may escape the current process in any way, for example being sent over RPC, or saved to disk. For a generalpurpose, noncryptographic hash function that will never change behavior, we suggestmurmur3_128(int)
.Repeated calls to this method on the same loaded
Hashing
class, using the same value forminimumBits
, will return identicallybehavingHashFunction
instances. Parameters:
minimumBits
 a positive integer (can be arbitrarily large) Returns:
 a hash function, described above, that produces hash codes of length
minimumBits
or greater

consistentHash
public static int consistentHash(HashCode hashCode, int buckets)
Assigns tohashCode
a "bucket" in the range[0, buckets)
, in a uniform manner that minimizes the need for remapping asbuckets
grows. That is,consistentHash(h, n)
equals:n  1
, with approximate probability1/n
consistentHash(h, n  1)
, otherwise (probability1  1/n
)
This method is suitable for the common use case of dividing work among buckets that meet the following conditions:
 You want to assign the same fraction of inputs to each bucket.
 When you reduce the number of buckets, you can accept that the most recently added
buckets will be removed first. More concretely, if you are dividing traffic among tasks,
you can decrease the number of tasks from 15 and 10, killing off the final 5 tasks, and
consistentHash
will handle it. If, however, you are dividing traffic among serversalpha
,bravo
, andcharlie
and you occasionally need to take each of the servers offline,consistentHash
will be a poor fit: It provides no way for you to specify which of the three buckets is disappearing. Thus, if your buckets change from[alpha, bravo, charlie]
to[bravo, charlie]
, it will assign all the oldalpha
traffic tobravo
and all the oldbravo
traffic tocharlie
, rather than lettingbravo
keep its traffic.
See the Wikipedia article on consistent hashing for more information.
