Subject RE: Hadoop SAN Storage reuse
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 22:04:09 GMT
Hadoop performs best when each node has exclusive use of its disk.  Therefore, if you have
a choice, try to provision exclusive use of individual spindles on your SAN and map each one
to a separate mount on your Hadoop nodes.  Anything other than that will tend to produce poor
performance due to disk contention.

Subject: Hadoop SAN Storage reuse


I know SAN storage is not recommended for Hadoop.    But we don't want waste - already existing
SAN Storage.

How can we make use of SAN Storage for Hadoop - what are the best methods, can a Ethernet
upgrade helps,...?
