Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-5932) Speculative read performance data show unexpected results
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2013 21:27:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5932?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13786643#comment-13786643

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-5932:
-------------------------------------------

Are you doing counter updates?  That's the only use of sendRR for updates I see.

Can you post the stack trace of the assertion error you're getting?

> I've done a series of stress tests with eager retries enabled that show undesirable behavior.
I'm grouping these behaviours into one ticket as they are most likely related.
> 1) Killing off a node in a 4 node cluster actually increases performance.
> 2) Compactions make nodes slow, even after the compaction is done.
> 3) Eager Reads tend to lessen the *immediate* performance impact of a node going down,
but not consistently.
> My Environment:
> 1 stress machine: node0
> 4 C* nodes: node4, node5, node6, node7
> My script:
> node0 writes some data: stress -d node4 -F 30000000 -n 30000000 -i 5 -l 2 -K 20
> node0 reads some data: stress -d node4 -n 30000000 -o read -i 5 -K 20
> h3. Examples:
> h5. A node going down increases performance:
> !node-down-increase-performance.png!
> [Data for this test here|http://ryanmcguire.info/ds/graph/graph.html?stats=stats.eager_retry.node_killed.just_20.json&metric=interval_op_rate&operation=stress-read&smoothing=1]
> At 450s, I kill -9 one of the nodes. There is a brief decrease in performance as the
snitch adapts, but then it recovers... to even higher performance than before.
> h5. Compactions make nodes permanently slow:
> !compaction-makes-slow.png!
> !compaction-makes-slow-stats.png!
> The green and orange lines represent trials with eager retry enabled, they never recover
their op-rate from before the compaction as the red and blue lines do.
> [Data for this test here|http://ryanmcguire.info/ds/graph/graph.html?stats=stats.eager_retry.compaction.2.json&metric=interval_op_rate&operation=stress-read&smoothing=1]
> h5. Speculative Read tends to lessen the *immediate* impact:
> !eager-read-looks-promising.png!
> !eager-read-looks-promising-stats.png!
> This graph looked the most promising to me, the two trials with eager retry, the green
and orange line, at 450s showed the smallest dip in performance. 
> [Data for this test here|http://ryanmcguire.info/ds/graph/graph.html?stats=stats.eager_retry.node_killed.json&metric=interval_op_rate&operation=stress-read&smoothing=1]
> h5. But not always:
> !eager-read-not-consistent.png!
> !eager-read-not-consistent-stats.png!
> This is a retrial with the same settings as above, yet the 95percentile eager retry (red
line) did poorly this time at 450s.
> [Data for this test here|http://ryanmcguire.info/ds/graph/graph.html?stats=stats.eager_retry.node_killed.just_20.rc1.try2.json&metric=interval_op_rate&operation=stress-read&smoothing=1]
