ambari server network speed requirement


We want to setup a new hadoop cluster. Our hadoop nodes have Ethernet speed of 10GB/s and we have a machine having 1GB/s Ethernet speed. Can I use this box for ambari server ? If I configure ambari server in 1GB/s, will it impact any of my hadoop eco system services which will be running in 10GB/s Ethernet boxes ?


@madhu ravipati
Typically, allocating systems with highest bandwidth to data nodes will help you in fast file transfers. So you are right in a way to use the 1GB/s machine to configure ambari server. Ambari server will send small packets of data as a heartbeat to all its client nodes every 3 seconds but that doesn't take as much bandwidth when compared to the data nodes.
