Subject Hardware and Heap Allocation Questions
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 21:49:37 GMT
Hi folks,

We're looking into some new hardware for a Hbase cluster. After some research, some questions
came into mind regarding the specs and heap allocation:

1. There seems to be a dearth of articles in what hardware most people use for their master
servers. So, is there a recommended spec for the Master servers? 
2. After some research, it seems that the normal for Region servers are lots of RAM (24GB+),
12 spindle setups, and 2 x 6 cores. However, I recall reading some articles warning against
the allocation of more then 16GB to Regions. Is this warning still valid, or do workarounds
exist?
3. Finally, is there an article on the recommended heap allocation for each processes?

Thanks,
Young Kim
