Migrating as soon as node downtime? Restart node is a heavy work?

migration

#1

It seemly that Aerospike node start to migrate as soon as the node is down. What’s more, if I restart the down node, the node start cold start and cluster rebalance all data. If it is a heavy work for node to restart?


#2

Yes, having migrations adds a decent amount of load to a running cluster.


#3

Aerospike Enterprise has Fast Restart and Rapid Rebalace. These allow a node to restart and fully migrate data in minutes rather than hours.

A migration tuning guide can be found here: Tuning of migrate-sleep - Setting the migrate-sleep value on the recipient side vs. sender side is irrelevant.
