Subject Re: Stopped working on IGNITE-752 (speed up failure detection)
Date Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:54:13 GMT
Dmitriy, Igniters,

I've got the first yardstick benchmarking results on Amazon EC2. Thanks 
Nikolay for guidance and ready to use yardstick docker image.

Used configuration is the following - c4.xlarge, 5 server nodes, 1 
backup, running put/get benchmark, manually stopping one instance during 
the execution.
Time to warmup 60 seconds, execution time 150 seconds, 64 threads.

1) Failure detection timeout set to *300 ms.
*Unfortunately, a drop during a kill of one server nodes is significant. 
Please see a resulting plot in ignite-results-failure-detection.zip.

Making the timeout lower doesn't improve the situation.

Right after that I've decided to run the same benchmark with failure 
detection timeout ignored by setting several network related timeouts 
explicitly (these timeouts were used before when we got insignificant drop).

2) Explicitly set the timeouts above, run against the latest changes 
including mine.
Here I saw pretty the same result - the drop is again signification. 
Have a look at the plot in 

3) Well, the final sanity check was done over the latest release - 
ignite-1.3.0-incubation that does NOT contain my changes. The timeouts 
were the same as in 2).
Unfortunately, here I see the same drop as well. Look into 

Seems that we got that drop even before my 'failure detection timeout' 
changes were merged, if refer to 3). Will try to debug all this stuff 
better tomorrow.
