I’m trying to create a scenario when I have to fully recover from cluster crash. We have 4 nodes with shadows on EBS. We are creating snapshots daily.
So my scenario is like this:
- I’m creating completely new cluster.
- I’m attaching to those new nodes EBS volumes (as shadows) created from snapshots.
- Starting aerospike
Based on previous testing single node (stop aerospike, overwrite local device with zeros and then start aerospike server with attached shadow) I was expecting around 30 minutes to get fully operational.
I was expecting the same amount of time to recover full cluster but instead based on the data copy time it’s more about 10 hours.
I’ve tested this 3 times with destroying and creating clusters. Any ideas/thoughts on that ? We’re using enterprise edition and I can fill support ticket if needed.
