Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-11542) Create a benchmark to compare HDFS and Cassandra bulk read times
Date Fri, 29 Apr 2016 03:55:12 GMT


Stefania commented on CASSANDRA-11542:

These are the results with the Spark Connector modified to support the streaming proof of
concept. Results are in seconds and represent the average of 5 different runs, see [^]
for the raw data.

The improvement is approximately 30% for the RDD tests and 60% for the DF tests. Further,
the data for schema 3 does not match the data observed in the previous run and the high variance
continues to be observed.

I think there may be another dominating factor that explains these results, aside from the
time it takes to receive data from Cassandra. The fact that the streaming improvement is more
noticeable for DF rather than RDD tests, and significantly less than that noticed for [cassandra-stress
may indicate that data decoding client-side plays a bigger role than streaming in the final
performance results. I am going to attach flight recorder to a Spark worker to see if this
assumption is correct. I still think we need CASSANDRA-11520 and CASSANDRA-11521, but I just
want to make sure we tackle the bigger "bang for the buck" first.

> I propose creating a benchmark for comparing Cassandra and HDFS bulk reading performance.
Simple Spark queries will be performed on data stored in HDFS or Cassandra, and the entire
duration will be measured. An example query would be the max or min of a column or a count\(*\).
> This benchmark should allow determining the impact of:
> * partition size
> * number of clustering columns
> * number of value columns (cells)
