Subject Re: max concurrent connection to HDFS name node
Date Thu, 12 Feb 2015 22:05:30 GMT
The NN can do somewhere around 30,000 - 50,000 RPCs per second
currently, depending on configuration.  In general you do not want to
have extremely high NN RPC traffic, because it will slow things down.
You might consider re-architecting your application to do more DN
traffic and less NN traffic, if possible.  Hope that helps.
