Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3793) enable numa memory interleaving
Date Mon, 11 May 2015 15:56:01 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-3793:

bq. Do this by default in the start scripts.

I'm not sure I'm a big fan of trying to change kernel parameters in our start scripts (nor
sure how it would work as I assume you need root privileges). Wouldn't something like this
be better served in a "System Configuration" section of the user manual which could also include
things like disabling transparent huge pages, reducing swappiness, etc?

> In this [fine article|] it is recommended that NUMA optimizations
be disabled. This seems to be exactly our use-case as well, and we have been struggling with
ways to manage the linux page cache on large production systems.  Do this by default in the
start scripts.
