Namenode takes long time to flush editlog to journalnode

Namenode takes long time to flush editlog to journalnode

Explorer

we are running cdh 5.10 cluster with about 500 nodes, we installed nn/jn/zk as bellow:
host1: namenode, journal node, zookeeper
host2: namenode, journal node, zookeeper
host3: journal node, zookeeper
(no other service is install on these three host)

 

namenode's fsimage & editlog storage dir is configed at "/data1/dfs/nn/" and "/data2/dfs/nn/"
journal node's editlog storage dir is configed at "/data3/dfs/nn/"
/data1 and /data2 is mount at individual disk driver

 

when we look into the namenode's log, we found that namenode takes long time to flush editlog to journalnode, and flush to local disk driver is not taking that much time.as seeing from the log, flush to journal node is about 4x~5x times longer than flush to local disk. bellow is some log snippets:

is this editlog sync behave normal? how can we speed up the flush operation when flush to journal node?
Any reply is appreciated.
