> We have had several performance concerns or potential improvements for the logging subsystem.
To conduct these in a data-driven way, it would be good to have a single-machine performance
test that isolated the performance of the log.
> The performance optimizations we would like to evaluate include
> - Special casing appends in a follower which already have the correct offset to avoid
decompression and recompression
> - Memory mapping either all or some of the segment files to improve the performance of
small appends and lookups
> - Supporting multiple data directories and avoiding RAID
> Having a standalone tool is nice to isolate the component and makes profiling more intelligible.
> This test would drive load against Log/LogManager controlled by a set of command line
options. These command line program could then be scripted up into a suite of tests that covered
variations in message size, message set size, compression, number of partitions, etc.
> Here is a proposed usage for the tool:
> ./bin/kafka-log-perf-test.sh
> Option                   Description                            
> ------                       -----------                            
> --partitions             The number of partitions to write to
> --dir                       The directory in which to write the log
> --message-size      The size of the messages
> --set-size               The number of messages per write
> --compression        Compression alg
> --messages            The number of messages to write
> --readers                The number of reader threads reading the data
> The tool would capture latency and throughput for the append() and read() operations.
