Poor performance after migrate environment from gcloud

We have a cliente on gcp and we need to migrate to a new datacenter. They had a cluster with six nodes, each one with 4 cpus and 4gb ram. The size of database is approximately about 260gb with a java application in ten servers comparing some musics fingerprints. On this enviroment the speed queries something about 300 ms. We migrate to bate metal servers, with four nodes, each one with 12 cores and 64gb ram, with same OS versions and same aerospike version ( On our environment, these same queries take something about 20 sec, 30 sec, the processors will go to 100% of use. We try so many different settings, and we didn’t even come close to the performance from old environment, so, any, any kind of help is welcome .

I am not sure the database would start with a config as this one for the storage-engine:

Looking at log files comparing the two systems may give some clues. I am not sure whether there would be something about those AMD Ryzen 5 CPU that would cause any issue or if it is something else in the configuration itself.

Hi meher

Im already remove storage-engine-memory. On my researches, i found something weirdo. When i start the old java application, the network bandwith going on the limit.

Hard to comment much more with this limited data set. If you have an Enterprise License, you can hit Aerospike Support. Otherwise, check your server logs or monitoring dashboards to see if there is some observable pattern. Could be a small performance regression causing clients to over-react and try to compensate and make things worse…
