Testing

Start 3-member etcd cluster, each of which uses 2 cores.

The length of key name is always 64 bytes, which is a reasonable length of average key bytes.

Memory Maximal Usage

  • etcd may use maximal memory if one follower is dead and the leader keeps sending snapshots.
  • max RSS is the maximal memory usage recorded in 3 runs.

Data Size Threshold

  • When etcd reaches data size threshold, it may trigger leader election easily and drop part of proposals.
  • For most cases, the etcd cluster should work smoothly if it doesn’t hit the threshold. If it doesn’t work well due to insufficient resources, decrease its data size.
