Particle flat size errors in Aerospike.log

Problem Description

Client writes fail and the following message is displayed in the /var/log/aerospike.log.

Jul 29 2016 13:33:58 GMT: WARNING (rw): (thr_rw.c::4094) {test} write_local: a24982daef26ee63 too big - 1 bins, particles flat size 20485

Explanation

This error will be seen in the server logs when records larger than the write-block-size are inserted. It is not possible to insert records larger than the write_block_size as records cannot span multiple write-blocks.

Solution

Incoming client data should be correctly profiled. If records exceed the configured write-block-size this can be managed on the client or write-block-size can be increased, but this requires a node restart. If the cluster is sized correctly, correct write-block-size should not be a problem.
