Subject Re: Effect of region size on compaction performance
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 01:41:06 GMT
Hey David,

 What is your write pattern?  If you are bulkloading the data into HBase
this gives you the ability to add more regions and control your
compactions.  If not, a high number of regions as Vlad indicated can cause
some weird issues.  How many region servers do you have?  What is the
current region count?  How many MB/s are you ingesting into your cluster?
 Do you write equally to all regions during ingest?
