When applications are only reading and writing through Alluxio, the Alluxio file system provides strong consistency. However, when clients are writing data across both Alluxio and under storage, the consistency depends on the Alluxio write type and under storage type. This article discusses what to expect in each scenario.
Testing Methodology Decision support workload is a typical workload that models multiple aspects of a decision support system, including queries and data maintenance. We selected 54 queries that represent a typical SQL query behavior in Hadoop for the test. The tests include three different configurations: Without Alluxio, Alluxio on PMem and Alluxio on DRAM. The … Continued
