Subject Re: Default TS behavior when disk write speed are too slow
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2019 17:46:28 GMT
Is there any way to tune the write buffer size? Or know where that exists?

Correct. ATS allows limits the outstanding async writes and then when the write buffer fills
it stops enquing the data and the objects are not saved to disk. This is independent of the
number of clients.

Thank you, John!
Just to confirm my understanding is correct, ATS will proxy the requests without writing this
request to disk when disk write speed cannot catch up, is that right?

I am running a simulation/emulation using ATS, for the warming up period, if my fake clients
send requests too fast, it is possible that the objects might be not saved to disks, right?
And this is also true even if I have only one client because the write process is asynchronous,

ATS does not delay a request if it can't write down the data.  Instead it will simply proxy
the request without writing it down if the write buffer becomes full because of a slow disk.

Hi Community,
     What’s the default behavior of ATS if the disk write speed is too slow, will it slow
down each request? Can ATS still serve requests without storing to disk?
I am thinking about the following scenario, the disk we are using occasionally is really slow
and the miss ratio can be super high (meaning a large number of objects need to be written
to a slow disk).
Thank you!
