Subject Re: How to warm up a cold node
Date Tue, 19 Apr 2011 12:41:20 GMT
Shouldn't the dynamic snitch take into account response times and ask a
slow node for less requests? It seems that at node startup, only a
handfull of requests arrive to the node and it keeps up well, but
there's moment where there's more than it can handle with a cold cache
and starts droping messages like crazy.

Could it be the transition from slow node to ok node is to steep?
