Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6976) Determining replicas to query is very slow with large numbers of nodes or vnodes
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2014 20:44:49 GMT


Ariel Weisberg commented on CASSANDRA-6976:

I tried reproducing this on my i5 Sandy Bridge with 4gb of RAM using CCM. I modified StorageProxy.getRangeSlice
to log time in microseconds and removed the code from CASSANDRA-6906 that short circuits away
from StorageProxy.getRestrictedRanges. I also timed getRestrictedRanges and found the loop
inside dominated.

I set MAX_NEW_SIZE to 32m and MAX_HEAP_SIZE to 256m.

ccm create -n 3 --vnodes foobar
Then edit ~/.ccm/cluster.conf to set num_tokens to 1536
ccm updateconfg
ccm start

ccm node1 showlog says the config using 1536 tokens. I can't set num tokens higher. 

bq. printf 'select * from system.local;%.0s' {1..50000} | ./cqlsh > /dev/null
My benchmark client

The loop in getRestrictedRanges iterated 4609 times in 450 microseconds. StorageProxy.getRangeSlice
took 6 milliseconds. With num_tokens = 256 the number of iterations was 769, time was 80 microseconds,
the total for getRangeSlice was 1300 microseconds.

Performance cuts in half twice, once after the first handful of queries and again after several
thousand which is probably JIT kicking in.

So yeah, total work done looks linear to number of tokens. Not clear yet if this is simply
because the query I am using actually needs to hit every single vnode and so the penalty is
payed for each one and is thus large or if this penalty would be payed by every s

> As described in CASSANDRA-6906, this can be ~100ms for a relatively small cluster with
vnodes, which is longer than it will spend in transit on the network. This should be much
