While measures such as raw compute performance and system capacity continue to be important factors for evaluating cluster performance, such issues as system reliability and application resilience have become increasingly important as cluster sizes rapidly grow. Although efforts to directly improve fault-tolerance are important, it is also essential to accept that application failures will inevitably occur and to ensure that progress is made despite these failures. Application monitoring… CONTINUE READING
