Subject Re: S4-Piper: Scalability in input adapter
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 17:14:13 GMT
Hi Kaiser,

Can you give more information as to why you need to scale
TwitterInputAdapter. Are you not able to pull events fast enough ?.

Can you explain how you plan to scale this. The reason i ask this is
twitter provides only one stream, it is not partitioned. The way to
scale is
This is pretty much what the twitteradapter is doing, it is simply
delegating it AppNodes. So in theory, you should be good with one
TwitterInputAdapter. If this does not work, then you can try the

Start multiple adapters, but in each adapter after getting the top
level status, hash it on userid and filter it accordingly.  For
example, if you have 2 adapters, each adapter filters 50% of the
messages based on user id.

If you can give us additional information on what you plan to do and
some numbers, we will be able to provide better instructions on how to
solve it with s4.
