A robust scheme for multilevel extendible hashing
MetadataShow full item record
Dynamic hashing, while surpassing other access methods for uniformly distributed data, usually performs badly for non-uniformly distributed data. We propose a robust scheme for multi-level extendible hashing, allowing efficient processing of skewed data as well as uniformly distributed data. In order to test our access method, we implemented it and compared it to several existing hashing schemes. The results of the experimental evaluation demonstrate the superiority of our approach in both index size and performance.
