This chapter discusses fault tolerance and how to configure it. The following aspects are covered:

  • Setting up a fault tolerant logical cluster inside a physical cluster. Creating tables and indices for fault tolerance.

  • Interpreting status and error messages and managing failures and recovery.

  • Optimizing a schema for fault tolerance: For read-intensive workloads, the work can be profitably split among many copies of the same partition.

  • RDF specifics relating to fault tolerance.

  • Splitting a cluster so that one copy of the partitions does bulk load while another serves online queries.
