Load testing Mesos

Yelp has been using Apache Mesos to power its production clusters for four years, and these clusters run at significant scale. We began to wonder how much further we could scale our clusters before Mesos bottlenecked our growth, so we performed a number of load tests to attempt to understand these limits. In this talk, we discuss the results of these load tests; specifically,

* how well the Mesos master APIs perform under heavy load, particularly with a large number of frameworks present
* how well the Mesos containerizer (aka the Universal Container Runtime, or UCR) performs compared to the Docker containerizer
* how the Mesos UCR performs when launching a group of containers, or "pods", using the Container Networking Interface to allocate an IP-per-container

All of our load test results (and the load testing harness) will be made available to the community for further analysis.
