Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2142) Add "reduce memory usage because I tuned things poorly" feature
Date Tue, 08 Feb 2011 21:29:57 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-2142:

Part of the problem there is the heap size of 128M is ridiculously small and you can insert
data quickly enough that CMS probably never gets a chance before it goes into the death spiral
I'm seen around 90% on various (1G+) heaps.  The threshold is too high though, although this
may ultimately depend on how much breathing room is left in the heap (and thus the size of
the heap itself.)

> Users frequently create too many columnfamilies, set the memtable thresholds too high
(or adjust throughput while ignoring operations), and/or set caching thresholds too high.
 Then their server OOMs and they tell their friends Cassandra sucks.
