I'm learning a lot from reading all of the great questions and informative
answers here on the Accumulo mailing list. Thus far I haven't come across
a question similar to mine, nor a basic recommendation so here goes:
I'm looking for recommendations on process / component placement for a
small Accumulo cluster serving a prototype. It will be scaled later, but
for now I'm looking at a cluster with just 8 nodes. My current thought
process has led me to the following server / process placement and I'm
interested in feedback on it.
zoo1, zoo2, zoo3: ZooKeeper servers, dual proc, 4 GB RAM (small servers)
namenode, secnamenode: 16GB RAM, 4 cores each, with local and remote
locations to store name data
*** Can I place the Accumulo Master on the NameNode or Secondary NameNode?
accdata1, accdata2, accdata3: 16GB RAM, 4 cores each, serving as HDFS
DataNodes and Accumulo TabletServers each with 4 2TB JBOD disks for HDFS
I'm thinking having the Accumulo Master on the NameNode will simplify
cluster startup. Thoughts? Recommendations?
Many thanks in advance,
