We should first make sure sqooping works using that box as it does on the other labsdb-analytics ones.
Then we should test some performance improvements using more mappers for bi projects, and sqooping more small projects at a time.
The new labsdb host, labsdb1012.eqiad.wmnet, is ready for testing. The only tunable that we have is the limit of concurrent TCP connections, set to 10 in the "regular" labsdb environment. I have already set it to '100' for the Analytics user, let's see if it is enough or if we need more (verifying that the host can handle the load of course).
