New cluster testing - best practices

New cluster testing - best practices

New Contributor



We have created a new 4 node cluster, before going to live what all things we need to test?


Do we any best practice in the industry for this? Do they do any Baseline checking? Do we need to perform "terasort" and "teragen" testing?


Please, someone, advise on this. 


Kind Regards,

I always run system tests depending on what services you are running and how users will be accessing it. Maybe I have trust issues but there have been more than one release were a service didn't function as expect out of the gate. Better to be sure it all works before you start hitting dials and levers.

Here is a list to get you thinking along those lines.
