Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3991) Investigate importance of jsvc in debian packages
Date Sat, 03 Mar 2012 11:54:57 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-3991:

Are we sure it actually restart the process? I could be wrong but last time I checked, jsvc
was only restarting a crashed process if the exit code was 123 (or something like that) and
I'm not sure we do that. Besides, restarting the process on crash by default in the debian
package is a bad idea imho. Anyway, not sure this is really buying us anything so I'm good
removing it too.

> jsvc seems to be buggy at best.  For instance, if you set a small heap like 128M it seems
to completely ignore this and use as much memory as it wants.  I don't know what this is buying
us over launching /usr/bin/cassandra directly like the redhat scripts do, but I've seen multiple
complaints about its memory usage.
