Subject Best strategy to test Zookeeper
Date Tue, 11 Nov 2014 04:14:30 GMT

Hi folks
I am benchmarking the performance of Zookeeper using five servers. I am just
testing the write workload (CREATE node) in both mode (sync and async). The
benchmark code is designed to measure the performance of a ZooKeeper
ensemble for a predetermined length of time (e.g., sustained handling of
create requests for 5 minutes seconds).

It seems easy to measure the latency and throughput in Sync mode as there is
not any process run in the background. 

Measuring latency Using Async mode can be achieved by stat command (four
word command). However, I am struggling to measure the throughput in Async
mode because when the 5 minutes elapsed, the requests are still processing
in Zookeeper and after some time will stop. Also when I try to use the stat
command I see the following output: 
Latency min/avg/max: 1/375/1259
Received: 201870
Sent: 201619
Connections: 1
Outstanding: 0
Zxid: 0x1000ff2c7
Mode: follower
Node count: 1032597

In the above output there is Node count, this can be expressed as total
number of nodes created, but the finished time is unknown. I think it is not
true to say the finished time is 5 minutes, because the processing request
is not finished when 5 minutes are elapsed  because of Async mode.

Can you share knowledge?
How can I solve this problem?
Can anyone advise me for best strategy of testing and measuring the
performance of write workload in Zookeeper?
