Subject Re: Parallel feed ingestion

Firstly, 3) won't work well as the socket server inside of AsterixDB takes
from client side one at a time. The thing you will observe while having two
clients sending
data to one socket simultaneously is, the 1st client will go through and
the 2nd will be
blocked after several hundreds records. This will continue until the 1st
one finishes.

The comparison between 1) and 2) is interesting. (@Abdullah please correct
me if I'm wrong.)
IMO, 1) achieves parallelism at the operator level by having intake
running on designated nodes simultaneously. 2) achieves that at job level
by simply
putting up several jobs which run independently. I think 1) may have less
compared to 2), since part of the workflow that can be shared is duplicated
multiple times in 2).
It would be useful to see how these two performs in saturated conditions.
