Subject Re: simple commands that mutate a large number of rows
Date Tue, 15 Sep 2015 14:07:29 GMT
That config setting (phoenix.mutate.maxSiize) is just a safety valve to
prevent out of memory errors and may be set to whatever you like. However,
if you're going to just turn around and do a commit after running your
upsert statement, performance will improve if you turn on auto commit
instead (connection.setAutoCommit(true)), as that'll prevent double
buffering and enable execution completely on the server side when possible.
