hashbrown 0.5.1

A Rust port of Google's SwissTable hash map

hashbrown

Build Status Crates.io Documentation

This crate is a Rust port of Google's high-performance SwissTable hash map, adapted to make it a drop-in replacement for Rust's standard HashMap and HashSet types.

The original C++ version of SwissTable can be found here, and this CppCon talk gives an overview of how the algorithm works.

Since Rust 1.36, this is now the HashMap implementation for the Rust standard library. All benchmarks and features below are compared to the previous hash table implementation in the Rust standard library.

Change log

Features

  • Drop-in replacement for the standard library HashMap and HashSet types.
  • Uses AHash as the default hasher, which is much faster than SipHash.
  • Around 2x faster than the previous standard library HashMap.
  • Lower memory usage: only 1 byte of overhead per entry instead of 8.
  • Compatible with #[no_std] (but requires a global allocator with the alloc crate).
  • Empty hash maps do not allocate any memory.
  • SIMD lookups to scan multiple hash entries in parallel.

Performance

Compared to the previous implementation of std::collections::HashMap (Rust 1.35).
