Subject Re: Load is high on the Kudu dedicated node.

Hi Jason,

By "bulk indexing only" you mean you are loading data with a high rate of

It seems that there is a lot of contention on the memory trackers.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KUDU-1502 is one JIRA where I noted
this was the case. If that's the culprit, I would look into the following:

- try to change your insert pattern so that it is more sequential in nature
(random inserts will cause a lot of block cache lookups to check for
duplicate keys)
- if you have RAM available, increase both the block cache capacity and the
server's memory limit accordingly, so that the bloom lookups will hit
Kudu's cache instead of having to go to the operating system cache.

Aside from that, we'll be spending some time on improving performance of
write-heavy workloads in upcoming releases, and I think fixing this
MemTracker contention will be one of the issues tackled.

In case the above isn't the issue, do you think you could use 'perf record
-g -a' and generate a flame graph?
