Subject meta region cpu contention
Date Fri, 24 Dec 2010 00:29:42 GMT
We are doing a map-reduce run to extract all keys from 500 tables with
few million records each.  What we noticed is that it seems that the
region server that holds the .meta. is somewhat CPU bound.  Question,
is it possible to nail or create affinitity for regions servers that
are beefy to hold .META.?   E.g. one nice thing would be to have it in
.xml config <RegionServerMetaAffinity>host,host,host, n,
..</RegionServerMetaAffinity>, here is what we see:

That server is dual-core, and great for natural region serving, but
meta interaction implies a lot of fast transactions, which would be
better served on 8 Core Box.
