Indexing (HDFS) Tuning Example

There are 48 partitions set for the indexing partition, per the enrichment exercise above.

These are the batch size settings for the Bro index.

cat ${METRON_HOME}/config/zookeeper/indexing/bro.json
{
"hdfs" : {
"index": "bro",
    "batchSize": 50,
    "enabled" : true
  }...
}
  

And here are the settings we used for the indexing topology

General storm settings

topology.workers: 4
topology.acker.executors: 24
topology.max.spout.pending: 2000

Spout and Bolt Settings

hdfsSyncPolicy
    org.apache.storm.hdfs.bolt.sync.CountSyncPolicy
    constructor arg=100000
hdfsRotationPolicy
    bolt.hdfs.rotation.policy.units=DAYS
    bolt.hdfs.rotation.policy.count=1
kafkaSpout
    parallelism: 24
    session.timeout.ms=29999
    enable.auto.commit=false
    setPollTimeoutMs=200
    setMaxUncommittedOffsets=10000000
    setOffsetCommitPeriodMs=30000
