Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-312) Connections should not be cached

Devaraj Das updated HADOOP-312:

    Attachment: no_conn_caching.patch

Increasing the accept queue length and a simple retry mechanism helped very much. Two cases
- (1) where idle connections are cached for a max of 1 sec at the client, and (2) where connections
are fully cached.
The performance of the sort benchmark (total time it takes to complete the run) is, most of
the times, better with (1). But with a few tasks failing here and there (in both cases), it's
actually hard to conclusively say anything about performance in terms of the time it takes
to run the benchmark. Made the accept queue length configurable (since that can be manually
set on Linux systems as part of the configurable TCP/IP parameters) with the default being

> Servers and clients (client include datanodes, tasktrackers, DFSClients & tasks)
should not cache connections or maybe cache them for very short periods of time. Clients should
set up & tear down connections to the servers everytime they need to contact the servers
(including the heartbeats). If connection is cached, then reuse the existing connection for
a few subsequent transactions until the connection expires. The heartbeat interval should
be more so that many more clients (order of  tens of thousands) can be accomodated within
1 heartbeat interval.
