Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1526) Make cassandra sampling and startup faster
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 18:03:35 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1526:

i doubt it.  sampling is i/o bound.

I do not see how that would be possible.

> This node has 200GB of data in two column families and the time to sample all tables
and startup is 7+ minutes. The logging suggests this process is happening a single SSTable
at a time. Additionally the normal system vitals mainly DISK and CPU do not look overtaxed.
> * Since SSTables are immutable is there a way the sampling of the tables could be saved?
> * Could this process be done in parallel for speedup?
> * Can multiple column families be processed at once?
> Unless someone has an insanely powerful disk pack making mention of 2TB limitations seem
out of place. Unless my calculations are wrong (which they usually are), I have a pretty decent
hardware, and if I had 2 TB of data I would have a 95 minute node start up? 
> I hope that maybe sampling multiple ColumnFamilies at once would make nodes of at least
a few hundred GB startup reasonably fast.
