Subject Re: Supervisely, RAID0 provides best io performance whereas no RAID the worst
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2016 09:39:26 GMT
Thanks Allen. I am aware of the fact you said and am wondering what's the
await and svctm on your cluster nodes. If there are no signifiant
difference, maybe I should try other ways to tune my HBase.

And Dejan, I've never heard of or noticed what you said. If that's true
it's really disappointing and please notice us if there's any progress.
