Practical guide to tuning HBASE and IMPALA

The University of Advancing Technology 2625 W. BASELINE RD. , Tempe, AZ 85283 (map)


Impala boastfully leads in performance against the traditional analytic databases for high concurrency workloads. HBase gives the ability of real-time read/write access to your wide column store data. These services are at the core of the majority of Insight's client projects. In this talk, Nithya and Michael will present case studies of two different client environments and how we tuned the underlying database infrastructure to scale for the needs of each. We will go over what to do to make Impala scale to meet high customer demand. Then we will present tuning steps to take to get an HBase infrastructure to utilize large amounts of available RAM. At the end of the talk will be a raffle.

Speaker Bio: Nithya Koka is a Senior Hadoop Administrator at Clairvoyant and leads multiple projects within the Insight space. She has started her career in DevOps and Hadoop Administration at Clairvoyant and is the proud, first engineer on the Insight team. Nithya has over 4 years of experience in Hadoop and has built, revamped and supported dozens of client environments. A Buckeye with a Masters from (the) Ohio State University, she's still nice to her clients from Michigan.
