Subject RE: Exponential performance decay when inserting large number of blocks
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2010 13:25:32 GMT
In the first few tests I created total of 24 files.  In the test with the last graph 88 files
before the break and 16 after.  The files were 

for  i in $(seq 1 8)
 path/to/hadoop/bin/hadoop fs -put bigData hdfs://$HDFS_URI/bigData$INSERT_NO-$i > put$i.log
2>&1 &

And I invoke it manually, increasing $2 each run.

How many files are you creating?  Can you post the script you're using to drive the test?
