Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7032) Improve vnode allocation
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2015 19:39:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7032?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14573452#comment-14573452

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7032:
-------------------------------------

I've pushed some minor suggestions [here|https://github.com/belliottsmith/cassandra/tree/7032-suggestions]

I think the integration / mechanism for employing this functionality could be improved, but
that can be delayed to a follow up ticket.

Before that, though, AFAICT the token ranges we're optimising for in this ticket are not those
the cluster actually runs on. They _start_ at the token assigned to each endpoint, instead
of _end_

Other than that it LGTM.

> It's been known for a little while that random vnode allocation causes hotspots of ownership.
It should be possible to improve dramatically on this with deterministic allocation. I have
quickly thrown together a simple greedy algorithm that allocates vnodes efficiently, and will
repair hotspots in a randomly allocated cluster gradually as more nodes are added, and also
ensures that token ranges are fairly evenly spread between nodes (somewhat tunably so). The
allocation still permits slight discrepancies in ownership, but it is bound by the inverse
of the size of the cluster (as opposed to random allocation, which strangely gets worse as
the cluster size increases). I'm sure there is a decent dynamic programming solution to this
that would be even better.
> If on joining the ring a new node were to CAS a shared table where a canonical allocation
of token ranges lives after running this (or a similar) algorithm, we could then get guaranteed
bounds on the ownership distribution in a cluster. This will also help for CASSANDRA-6696.
