Subject [jira] [Commented] (STORM-241) "storm jar" underperforms compared to scp
Date Wed, 26 Feb 2014 16:31:22 GMT


Adam Lewis commented on STORM-241:

I'm with you on keeping configs trim...Taylor originally suggested including a config option
for this when I filed the JIRA, I'm kind of ambivalent.  As Nathan said on the mailing list,
the 15k default was a completely arbitrary number...300k is another arbitrary number that
works better for me :)  I just want the out-of-the-box experience to be smooth for people
and this issue was/is a thorn in my side in that regard.  My only concern is that 300k was
specific to my particular network configuration (on that day of the week)...and it is a number
I arrived at by increasing 50k at a time until I saw diminishing returns and speeds approaching

Perhaps the best way to handle this is incrementally.  Hard code 300k now, and if we start
seeing requests to change the number _again_ then make it configurable.

> "storm jar" is very slow at sending the jar file, achieving roughly 10% of the throughput
compared to SCP for the same network configuration.  This is especially problematic when deploying
jars from over the Internet.
> This appears to be related to the chunk size used to transmit the JAR file over the thrift
protocol.  Anecdotally, a 300KB chunk size (compared to the currently used default of 15KB),
achieved performance in line with scp.
> Default can be overridden in the BufferFileInputStream ctor:
