Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3861) get_indexed_slices throws OOM Error when is called with too big indexClause.count
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 03:42:03 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-3861:

Man, performance vs helping people do the Right Thing, that's a tough call. :)

Is allocating a 10K list array that much of a performance hit?  My intuition is that it's
negligible compared to actually performing the query.

the node died with OOM. In the log there si following error:

> I think the result is never accessed by index (but only iterated) and the subList for
non RandomAccess Lists (for example LinkedList) will do the same job if you are not using
other operations than iteration.
