Pinned topic What must be included into RVU calculation?

‏2013-01-17T06:07:11Z |
If someone knows the answer for the below question, please let me know.

The announcement letter(http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS212-442&appname=USN) says license must be purchased based on "storage managed by the program".

In the case of BigInsights, do we have to take it into account, the partitions for install directories(/opt/ibm/biginsights(default)), log directories(/var/ibm/biginsights(default)), or any other directories BigInsights installer creates such as /hadoop?

Or is just the partitions for HDFS area enough?

At the example configuration below, in the former case, customer needs to purchase 7RVU, while just 6RVU is required for the latter case. (1TB = 1RVU under 12TB)

  • Example configuration *************************
  • 1 master server + 3 slave servers
  • 20GB partitions for Biginsights installation and log directories at all servers
  • 2TB partitions for HDFS at slave servers

    It is RAW data on HDFS with Before replication and After compression. You can check the size of HDFS consumed by files thru WebConsole or Hadoop command.
