Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7567) when the commit_log disk for a single node is overwhelmed the entire cluster slows down
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:46:41 GMT

Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-7567:
---------------------------------------------

I ran it a pretty long time, but I might just have more IO.  Can you try the cqlsh w/tracing
trick I did and see if you can catch a slow one?

>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>         Environment: debian 7.5, bare metal, 14 nodes, 64CPUs, 64GB RAM, commit_log disk
sata, data disk SSD, vnodes, leveled compaction strategy
>            Reporter: David O'Dell

> We've run into a situation where a single node out of 14 is experiencing high disk io.
This can happen when a node is being decommissioned or after it joins the ring and runs into
the bug cassandra-6621.
> When this occurs the write latency for the entire cluster spikes.
> From 0.3ms to 170ms.
> To simulate this simply run dd on the commit_log disk (dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/foo bs=1024)
and you will see that instantly all nodes in the cluster have slowed down.
> BTW overwhelming the data disk does not have this same effect.
> Also I've tried this where the overwhelmed node isn't being connected directly from the
client and it still has the same effect.
