Subject Re: and accumulo-site.xml recommendations for Tablet Servers

Increasing the size of the tserver and giving it larger caches will improve
query performance.

So, if you go up to 12G for your tserver, and increase your index/data
cache to 3/8G respectively, you should see improvements on warm queries.
 Keep an eye on your java gc timings, though.

Increasing the internal memory map size will improve write speed and
decrease compactions, but not by very much.

If you have a lot of tablets/files/servers, making the GC larger will keep
collection efficient.  Basically, if you can't keep the list of all files
which are candidates for deletion in memory, it has to use multiple passes
to reclaim files.

There is little benefit in making the other processes larger.
