Benchmarking

  1. 1. Benchmarking Steve Loughran Julio Guijarro © 2009 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice
  2. 2. Benchmarks
  3. 3. Some Problems •  Estimating Hadoop performance of hardware •  Estimating Hadoop performance of a cluster •  Designing Hadoop-ready servers •  Designing Hadoop-ready clusters •  Optimising the network for Hadoop •  Optimising Hadoop/HDFS for specific applications
  4. 4. Recent customer request "They want data for Hadoop Sort for 100GB."
  5. 5. Terasort: what else? •  PageRank: CPU intensive, small (static) input dataset •  Something that stresses RAM and CPU •  Something that seeks in the files?
  6. 6. Test Datasets •  Wikipedia: 5-10 TB of XML data with changes; user relationships have to be inferred •  SpamAssassin: 70+ GB of SPAM •  Physics? Something Small?
  7. 7. Network Measurement What to add to Hadoop/Avro/Thrift to monitor network traffic -and relate to specific jobs?
  8. 8. Predicting performance Can an MR job on small datasets predict performance on full size datasets? What extra instrumentation can help?
  9. 9. Hardware Q What should a Hadoop-ready server look like? What about a rack? Or a container?
