CONFIGURE YCSB_HOME - YCSB home directory DYNAMODB_HOME - Amazon DynamoDB package files Please refer to https://github.com/brianfrankcooper/YCSB/wiki/Using-the-Database-Libraries for more information on setup. BENCHMARK $YCSB_HOME/bin/ycsb load dynamodb -P workloads/workloada -P dynamodb.properties $YCSB_HOME/bin/ycsb run dynamodb -P workloads/workloada -P dynamodb.properties PROPERTIES $DYNAMODB_HOME/conf/dynamodb.properties $DYNAMODB_HOME/conf/AWSCredentials.properties FAQs * Why is the recommended workload distribution set to 'uniform'? This is to conform with the best practices for using DynamoDB - uniform, evenly distributed workload is the recommended pattern for scaling and getting predictable performance out of DynamoDB For more information refer to http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/amazondynamodb/latest/developerguide/BestPractices.html * How does workload size affect provisioned throughput? The default payload size requires double the provisioned throughput to execute the workload. This translates to double the provisioned throughput cost for testing. The default item size in YCSB are 1000 bytes plus metadata overhead, which makes the item exceed 1024 bytes. DynamoDB charges one capacity unit per 1024 bytes for read or writes. An item that is greater than 1024 bytes but less than or equal to 2048 bytes would cost 2 capacity units. With the change in payload size, each request would cost 1 capacity unit as opposed to 2, saving the cost of running the benchmark. For more information refer to http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/amazondynamodb/latest/developerguide/WorkingWithDDTables.html * How do you know if DynamoDB throttling is affecting benchmarking? Monitor CloudWatch for ThrottledRequests and if ThrottledRequests is greater than zero, either increase the DynamoDB table provisioned throughput or reduce YCSB throughput by reducing YCSB target throughput, adjusting the number of YCSB client threads, or combination of both. For more information please refer to https://github.com/brianfrankcooper/YCSB/blob/master/doc/tipsfaq.html When requests are throttled, latency measurements by YCSB can increase.
