Today we installed the MapR M3 v2.1.1 , and we are testing speed of File System

our system is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and M3 v2.1.1 and three nodes.

when we upload a 1.6G file to MapR file System, the time delay is below
we used on M3 with default settings

    $ time hadoop fs -put 1.6G.bin /test
    real    3m12.429s
    user    0m3.232s
    sys     0m2.396s

When we tested on HDFS with same file(1.6G file), the upload time is
faster than MapR FS like below

    real 2m38.283s

On HDFS we set up the dfs.replication value is 3.

Please let me know for getting good performance or Please give me a
advice or comment.
