Subject Re: state size effects latency
Date Sun, 29 Oct 2017 10:13:25 GMT
We have also faced similar issues. The only thing that happens in sync when
using async snaphots is getting a persistent point in time picture which in
case of rocksdb backend is making symlinks. That would linearly increase
with number of files to symlink but this should be negligible. We could not
find a satisfying reason for increase in latency with state size.

Best,
Narendra
