Subject Re: clarification on Partitioning Guidelines and CPU cores
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2018 00:59:09 GMT
thanks for replying, Adar. Did some math and in our case we are hitting
another Kudu limit - 60 tablets per node. We use high density nodes with 2
24-core CPUs so we have 88 hyperthreaded cores total per node or 88*24=2112
cores total. But I cannot create more than 60*24=1440 tablets per table.
Looks like my tablets for the largest table will be around 8-10Gb in size.
Should I be worried since recommendation is to keep tablets about 1Gb in
