Subject [jira] Updated: (CASSANDRA-1181) kinder gentler compaction
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2010 20:34:50 GMT


Edward Capriolo updated CASSANDRA-1181:

    Attachment: stats.txt

Just wanted to check back in. I enabled the thread priorities and initiated a compaction.
Both my latency and tpstats looked on par with other nodes in the cluster that were not compacting
at the time. This looks great. I included some system statistics to show off. Thanks!

> I suggested this in a ML thread but it seems that nobody actually tried it.  I think
it's worth following up on:
> You could try setting the compaction thread to a lower priority.  You could add a thread
priority to NamedThreadPool, and pass that up from CompactionExecutor constructor.  According
to you have to run as root and
add a JVM option to get this to work.
> In particular, Brandon saw read latencies spike to 100ms during [anti]compaction
on a 2 core machine.  I'd like to see if this can mitigate that.
