KDC capacity recommendation

KDC capacity recommendation

New Contributor

Hi, I'm new to Cloudera/Hadoop and I've been tasked with configuring an MIT KDC for a Hadoop cluster. I was curious if anybody could provide a recommendation as per the number of Hadoop hosts an average MIT KDC could handle without sweat. I've heard different numbers (100 machines per KDC being one of them). 

 

Is there an official recommendation and does anybody have experience based numbers? What factors could be affecting that? Average number of TGT/TGS requests per day? Tips for improving the performance of the KDC?

 

Thank you for any insight!
