Adding nodes to a cluster takes a long time
This archive was generated by
I've noticed that it takes a fairly long time to add nodes to an
existing cluster. Starting a new cluster is a lot faster.
For example, starting a new cluster of 50 nodes using
starcluster start -c mediumcluster -b 0.02 -s 50 mycluster
>>> Configuring cluster took 1.445 mins
>>> Starting cluster took 8.749 mins
which is reasonable. But adding another 50 nodes to the cluster with
starcluster addnode -b 0.02 -n 50 -I m1.medium mycluster
takes over 45 minutes. I'm using StarCluster 0.94.
I would need to add hundreds of nodes at a time, and at this rate the
start up times quickly become too much for our purposes.
Is there any way to speed up adding nodes?
