AMD Hadoop Tuning Guide

Hadoop is a large and complex software framework involving a number of components interacting with each other across multiple hardware systems. Bottlenecks in a subset of the hardware systems within the cluster can cause overall poor performance of the underlying Hadoop workload. 

In this tuning guide, we attempt to provide the audience with a holistic approach of Hadoop performance tuning methodologies and best practices. Using these methodologies we have been able to achieve as much as 5.6X performance improvements. We discuss hardware as well as software tuning techniques including OS, JVM and Hadoop configuration parameters tuning.
