We have HA enabled for the metastore and have 2 instances running. Is it possible to configre a load balancer in front of these ? and if so is this normal practice ?
So how do you scale Hive Metastore when you need to support more than 80 active connections?
According to Cloudera's documentation they only mention supporting up to 80 connections which needs 16-24GB.
Does passing 80 connection requires to continue extending the Heap Memory? How big can it be since 24GB is already too big isn't it?
