Subject Re: Bulk ingest losing tablet server

Yes, system swappiness is set to 0.  I'll run again and gather more logs.

Is there a zookeeper timeout setting that I can adjust to avoid this issue
and is that advisable?  Basically, the tservers are colocated with HDFS
datanodes and Hadoop nodemanagers.  The machines are overallocated in terms
of RAM.  So, I have a feeling that when a map-reduce job is kicked off, it
causes the tserver to page out to swap space.  Once the map-reduce job
finishes and the bulk ingest is kicked off, the tserver is paged back in
and the ZK timeout causes a shutdown.
