Re: ingest performance oscillations and Xceivers
Hey Jeremy,

Can you compare the ingest rate to the number of tablets, too?

I've found, that if I have 20-80 tablets per server (on similar hardware) I
get the best performance.

# of Xceivers == number of writers when ingest is the primary target.

Also, is this 1.4 or trunk?
