Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1083) add concurrency to HDFS write-ahead log
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 16:47:16 GMT

John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-1083:
--------------------------------------

A majority of the hadoop configurations were defaults. We really haven't had time to revisit
that system to run more tests though.

> When running tablet servers on beefy nodes (lots of disks), the write-ahead log can be
a serious bottleneck. Today we ran a continuous ingest test of 1.5-SNAPSHOT on an 8-node (plus
a master node) cluster in which the nodes had 32 cores and 15 drives each. Running with write-ahead
log off resulted in a >4x performance improvement sustained over a long period.
> I believe the culprit is that the WAL is only using one file at a time per tablet server,
which means HDFS is only appending to one drive (plus replicas). If we increase the number
of concurrent WAL files supported on a tablet server we could probably drastically improve
the performance on systems with many disks. As it stands, I believe Accumulo is significantly
more optimized for a larger number of smaller nodes (3-4 drives).
