> For those spoiled by nice rolling and appending syslogs log4js etc the JVM gc log can
be jarring:
> {noformat} 
> # GC logging options -- uncomment to enable
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCDetails"
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps"
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintClassHistogram"
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintTenuringDistribution"
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCApplicationStoppedTime"
> # JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -Xloggc:/var/log/cassandra/gc.log"
> {noformat} 
> Will result in gc.log with days of data being overwritten on restart, which leads to
sad faces.
> The simplest change would be along these lines:
> {noformat} 
> GC_LOG_TS=`date +%s`
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCDetails"
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCTimeStamps"
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintClassHistogram"
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintTenuringDistribution"
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -XX:+PrintGCApplicationStoppedTime"
> JVM_OPTS="$JVM_OPTS -Xloggc:/var/log/cassandra/gc-$GC_LOG_TS.log"
> {noformat} 
> There are probably prettier approaches.
