Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7933) Update cassandra-stress README
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2015 18:48:35 GMT


Ariel Weisberg commented on CASSANDRA-7933:

Brought over from CASSANDRA-8597. Stress needs additional documentation to introduce concepts
and verbiage as well as common workflows. Most first time users will not be familiar with
C* terminology .

There are two dimensions data distribution and access distribution and knowing all the knobs
for describing data distribution (# partition, # cells/rows, #size of cells) and access distribution
(across partitions, across cells within partitions, random vs sequential strides, # of rows/cells
to select) would be helpful. I think some times these parameters are linked as well. Understanding
data and access distribution is key to realistically simulating workloads.

A recipe of how you do a bulk load and then transition to some other mixed read/write pattern
with matching schema. A recipe for single column rows as well as multi-column or very wide

It's also worth mentioning in the distribution section that you can get the tool to print
a summary of distributions so you know what the parameters are doing.
