Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 02:20:51 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-5935:

Note that I've deliberately omitted this setting from cassandra.yaml; see above on "almost
certainly a Bad Idea."

> Arena allocation (CASSANDRA-2252) dramatically improves garbage collection performance,
but it can limit the number of tables that can be practically defined in the schema since
you have a minimum of 1MB of heap per table.
> Although having more than dozens or hundreds of tables defined is almost certainly a
Bad Idea (just as it is a design smell in a relational database), it's relatively straightforward
to allow disabling the SlabAllocator.
