Apache HBase Performance Considerations - Comparing the Use of Amazon DynamoDB and Apache HBase for NoSQL

Apache HBase Performance Considerations

Apache HBase performance tuning spans hardware, network, Apache HBase configurations, Hadoop configurations, and the Java Virtual Machine Garbage Collection settings. It also includes applying best practices when using the client API. To optimize performance, it is worthwhile to monitor Apache HBase workloads with tools such as Ganglia to identify performance problems early and apply recommended best practices based on observed performance metrics.
