Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6127) vnodes don't scale to hundreds of nodes
Date Sat, 26 Oct 2013 00:32:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-6127?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13805880#comment-13805880

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6127:
-------------------------------------------

Patch 1 will break things since later on we write the length of the string as two bytes.

I think we're fine with 1700 vnodes per machine TBH, although it would be better to limit
that in the config instead of failing at an assert later on.

>          Components: Core
>         Environment: Any cluster that has vnodes and consists of hundreds of physical
nodes.

> There are a lot of gossip-related issues related to very wide clusters that also have
vnodes enabled. Let's use this ticket as a master in case there are sub-tickets.
> The most obvious symptom I've seen is with 1000 nodes in EC2 with m1.xlarge instances.
Each node configured with 32 vnodes.
> Without vnodes, cluster spins up fine and is ready to handle requests within 30 minutes
or less. 
> With vnodes, nodes are reporting constant up/down flapping messages with no external
load on the cluster. After a couple of hours, they were still flapping, had very high cpu
load, and the cluster never looked like it was going to stabilize or be useful for traffic.
