Talk Abstract

Apache Fluo (incubating) is an open source implementation of Percolator (which populates Google's search index) for Apache Accumulo. Fluo makes it possible to update the results of a large-scale computation, index, or analytic as new data is discovered.

While working on developing Fluo, we made it a priority to attempt to develop applications for Fluo in tandem. Developing these applications resulted in many improvements to Fluo and we also learned a lot about writing Fluo applications. These lesson learned drove the implementation of the Fluo Recipes project. This talk will go over some of the lessons learned and Fluo Recipes.  Hopefully this information will save time for anyone attempting to write a Fluo application.

Some of the areas that will be covered are:

  • Organizing data for optimal performance
  • Achieving high cluster utilization
  • Exporting data from Fluo to query systems
  • Avoiding performance degradation over time
