Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3991) Investigate importance of jsvc in debian packages
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 04:24:15 GMT


Arya Goudarzi commented on CASSANDRA-3991:

+1 on this issue. I was not monitoring the inodes but JSVC definitely was eating 68Gb of memory
and using a lot of CPU. Starting cassandra without it solved the problem. It was really bad
as for a week Cassandra was being blamed but really that was not the issue. For sake of Cassandra
reputation, this deserves a higher priority.

> 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.
