Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2144) Data node process consumes 180% cpu
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2007 16:17:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2144?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12539628

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-2144:


What was the overall cpu reported at the top of top? (system, user, idle, iowait).

What % of cpu was taken by all 4 clients together? 

If it is easy to reproduce for you, I would like to take a quick look.

>                 Key: HADOOP-2144
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2144
>             Project: Hadoop
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: dfs
>            Reporter: Runping Qi
> I did a test on DFS read throughput and found that the data node 
> process consumes up to 180% cpu when it is under heavi load. Here are the details:
> The cluster has 380+ machines, each with 3GB mem and 4 cpus and 4 disks.
> I copied a 10GB file to dfs from one machine with a data node running there.
> Based on the dfs block placement policy, that machine has one replica for each block
of the file.
> then I run 4 of the following commands in parellel:
> hadoop dfs -cat thefile > /dev/null &
> Since all the blocks have a local replica, all the read requests went to the local data
> I observed that:
>     The data node process's cpu usage was around 180% for most of the time .
>     The clients's cpu usage was moderate (as it should be).
>     All the four disks were working concurrently with comparable read throughput.
>     The total read throughput was maxed at 90MB/Sec, about 60% of the expected total

>     aggregated max read throughput of 4 disks (160MB/Sec). Thus disks were not a bottleneck
>     in this case.
> The data node's cpu usage seems unreasonably high.
