HDP sandbox 3.0.1 performance

New Contributor

Hi all,


I have just installed hdp sandbox 3.0.1 on vmware, I leaved default hardware settings, but I have very low performance. 


Time taken: 709.678 seconds for a select count(*) in on a table with 50 records. I tried with Data Analytics Studio and with beeline, same result.


How can I improve performance on sandbox? Is there any settings I can do?





Yes. You can allocate more of the host machine's RAM to the virtual machine. Take your current setting for that configuration, double it, then perform the same query against the same data set and compare the result. I also strongly recommend a close reading of
