Subject RE: Runtime.availableProcessors() returns hardware's CPU count whichis the issue with Ignite in Kubernetes
Date Tue, 26 Dec 2017 16:39:24 GMT
Hi Arseny,

Both OpenJDK and Oracle JDK 8u151 should do.
I’ve checked and it seems that it is indeed about the specific way of invoking Docker. By
default it doesn’t restrict container to particular CPUs, but you can make it do that by
using `--cpuset-cpus` flag.

Without cpuset (Docker host has 4 CPUs)
    >docker run -it java-docker bash
    root@8a2cd9d06695:/usr/test# java -version
    openjdk version "1.8.0_151"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_151-8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.16.04.2-b12)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.151-b12, mixed mode)
    root@8a2cd9d06695:/usr/test# jjs
    jjs> print(java.lang.Runtime.runtime.availableProcessors());

With cpuset specifying the first two CPUs
    >docker run -it --cpuset-cpus=0,1 java-docker bash
    root@7c2723a9819e:/usr/test# jjs
    jjs> print(java.lang.Runtime.runtime.availableProcessors());

Note also that by using cpuset you change the settings for the whole container, not just for
the Ignite, so that other Java pools in the same JVM, e.g. parallel stream executor, should
also work better.

Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with Kubernetes, but the manual [1] says that you can enable
the use of cpusets via a static CPU management policy.

Hope that helps,

Hi Stanislav.

We use OpenJDK and use Alpine Linux based images. See java version below. In our environment
availableProcessors returns CPU's for the host. 

Did you mean to try Oracle's JDK 8u151?
arseny@kovalchuka-ubuntu:~/kipod-x$ ku exec ignite-instance-0 -ti bash
bash-4.4# java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_151"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.6.0) (Alpine 8.151.12-r0)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.151-b12, mixed mode)
bash-4.4# jjs
jjs> print(java.lang.Runtime.runtime.availableProcessors());

Ilya, agree. I like IGNITE_AVAILABLE_CPU more.

Yakov Zhdanov,

Hi Yakov,

I think that property IGNITE_NODES_PER_HOST, as you suggested, would be confusing, because
users might want to reduce amount of available resources for ignite node not only because
they run multiple nodes per host, but also because they run other software. Also, in my opinion
all types of system resources (CPU, memory, network) shouldn't be scaled using the same value.

So I'd prefer to have IGNITE_CONCURRENCY_LEVEL or IGNITE_AVAILABLE_PROCESSORS, as it was originally

Cross-posting to dev list.


Suggestion below makes sense to me. Filed a ticket

Perhaps, Arseny would like to provide a PR himself ;)
