I am running Gelly examples with different datasets in a cluster of 5 machines (1 Jobmanager and 4 Taskmanagers) of 32 cores each.
The number of Slots parameter is set to 32 (as suggested) and the parallelism to 128 (32 cores*4 taskmanagers).
I observe a vast performance degradation using these suggested settings than setting parallelism.default to 16 for example were the same job completes at ~60 seconds vs ~140 in the 128 parallelism case.
Is there something wrong in my configuration? Should I decrease parallelism and
if so will this inevitably decrease CPU utilization?
Another matter that may be related to this is the number of partitions of the data. Is this somehow related to parallelism? How many partitions are created in the case of parallelism.default=128?
