tools-manifest: WebServiceMonitor load on NFS
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

/usr/bin/collector-runner WebServiceMonitor wakes up every 10 seconds and does a search looking for files in /data/project/*/service.manifest

tools-service-02 generates around 400-500 NFS ops/sec. We'd rather avoid that load on our NFS server, considering the performance problems we experience.

It seems the reaction time of 10 seconds might afford some tweaking to better match what our environment can really offer.

There's additional load on LDAP services but I haven't measured those. Network throughput from LDAP requests is higher than NFS, so changing the wake up time would also help with that.

Can we cache the result? I mean, like bigbrother, the purpose of webservicemonitor is to restart one or more jobs when they exit unexpectedly. This 'unexpected exit' are likely unattended, and the jobs likely have been running for a long time with the file set. I think it would be fine to do the manifest refreshes at a rate of, say once an hour or every few hours. Only checking the job status do every 10 seconds.
