Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-13868) S3A should configure multi-part copies and uploads separately
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 12:54:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13868?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15728695#comment-15728695

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-13868:

always risky changing defaults, but as the fast output stuff hasn't shipped yet, that's something
which could be played with.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13868
>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: fs/s3
>    Affects Versions: 2.7.0, 3.0.0-alpha1
>            Reporter: Sean Mackrory
>            Assignee: Sean Mackrory
> I've been looking at a big performance regression when writing to S3 from Spark that
appears to have been introduced with HADOOP-12891.
> In the Amazon SDK, the default threshold for multi-part copies is 320x the threshold
for multi-part uploads (and the block size is 20x bigger), so I don't think it's necessarily
wise for us to have them be the same.
> I did some quick tests and it seems to me the sweet spot when multi-part copies start
being faster is around 512MB. It wasn't as significant, but using 104857600 (Amazon's default)
for the blocksize was also slightly better.
> I propose we do the following, although they're independent decisions:
> (1) Split the configuration. Ideally, I'd like to have fs.s3a.multipart.copy.threshold
and fs.s3a.multipart.upload.threshold (and corresponding properties for the block size). But
then there's the question of what to do with the existing fs.s3a.multipart.* properties. Deprecation?
Leave it as a short-hand for configuring both (that's overridden by the more specific properties?).
> (2) Consider increasing the default values. In my tests, 256 MB seemed to be where multipart
uploads came into their own, and 512 MB was where multipart copies started outperforming the
alternative. Would be interested to hear what other people have seen.
