Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3183) Make SerializingCacheProvider the default if JNA is available
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 20:31:09 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-3183:

- I don't like having two different checks (isJNAEnabled in CLibrary, and does Memory class
exist in SCP)
- -alt patch doesn't address other problems (thrift always including a CLHCP value, which
means default in CFM gets ignored, or being able to startup on a machine w/o JNA, w/ a schema
including SCP)

> The serializing cache is a better choice for most users:
> - Lower total memory usage (serialized data is usually 8x-12x smaller than "live" data
in the JVM with all the overhead that involves) means you can cache more rows for a given
memory footprint
> - Moving the serialized rows off-heap means you can use smaller heaps, reducing the impact
of GC pauses
