To Hadoop Guru's,
I am new in planning cluster and need some directions in doing some capacity planing for Hadoop Cluster.
Production cluster will be on
1) Node 1: Namenode
2) Node 2: Resouce Manager Node
3) Node 3: Standby Name node
But not sure how much RAM will be required for namenode and each datanode, as well as no of CPU's. The block size is 128MB. Let me know what else needs to be consider to select the RAM size and # of CPU's.
@Sachin Ambardekar There is documentation at http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.5.3/bk_cluster-planning/content/ch_hardware-reco... that discusses overall cluster planning. Things like memory sizing, configurations for different types of nodes (masters vs. workers), and other hardware considerations are detailed at http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.5.3/bk_cluster-planning/content/server-node.1.ht....
"Depending on the number of cores, your slave nodes typically require 24 GB to 48 GB of RAM for Hadoop applications"
Does this mean that each datanode should have 24GB - 48GB RAM and quad core CPU?
- The NameNode heap size depends on many factors, such as the number of files, the number of blocks, and the load on the system. So you can refer to know how much Heap will be usually needed for the NameNode based on the number of files and same thing will apply on the "StandBy NameNode". So you can plan for Xmx heap memory and RAM on that namenode host accordingly.
- Similarly for YARN (like resource Manager) you can use the HDP utility script is the recommended method for calculating HDP memory configuration settings, also information about manually calculating YARN and MapReduce memory configuration settings is also provided for reference. See below link
