Qunar is a Chinese-language online travel information provider and mainland search engine for web-based and mobile users. Currently, Qunar’s streaming platform processes around 6 billion system log entries (~4.5 TB) daily. Many jobs running on the platform are business critical and therefore impose strict requirements on both stability and low latency. For example, real-time user recommendations are generated mainly based on the log analysis of a user’s click behavior as well as the search pattern. The faster the iteration of the analysis, the more accurate the feedback that Qunar can deliver to the users. Therefore low latency and high stability are the top priorities of its system.
Alluxio is the first memory-speed virtual distributed storage system in the world. It unifies the interface between the various computing frameworks and under storages. Data access can be several magnitude faster because of Alluxio’s memory-centric architecture. In addition, Alluxio’s tiered storage, unified namespace, flexible file API, web UI, and command-line tools increase the usability in different application scenarios.
Qunar has been running Alluxio in production for over a year. Lei Xu explores how stream processing on Alluxio has led to a 16x performance improvement on average and 300x improvement at service peak time on workloads at Qunar.
