Abstract: “Automating physical database design has remained a long-term interest in database research due to substantial performance gains afforded by optimised structures. Despite significant progress, a majority of today’s commercial solutions are highly manual, requiring offline invocation by database administrators (DBAs) who are expected to identify and supply representative training… Read More »DBA bandits: Self-driving index tuning under ad-hoc, analytical workloads with safety guarantees
There aren’t many benchmarks which allow you to test your systems against a hybrid OLTP and OLAP workloads. CH-BenCHmark fills that gap by combining TPC-C and TPC-H. You can download the source from the linked site or you can use something like OLTPBench (a collection of benchmarks). However, the TPC-H… Read More »CH-BenCHmark for MS SQL Server – HTAP benchmarking
I recently configured a 2-node Cassandra cluster with elastic search installed in both nodes creating another 2-node cluster (Cassandra cluster was built using DataStax OpsCenter). Soon after I configured my cluster, I got to know that there are x + 1 issues when we try to get it done with only 2 nodes.
Split brain problem in elastic search
When there are, 2 or more nodes acting like master nodes we call it a split brain. This can happen when one node does not know that it is connected to a cluster with a master. When there is more than 1 master, indexing requests will be completed by both nodes and after some time two copies of the shard are diverged. We might have to do full re-indexing to overcome this issue. If you need more information about the split-brain problem here.
