> The problem is caused by having 2300+ tokens due to vnodes.

> The problem seem to be in AbstractColumnFamilyInputFormat line ~180 which has an unbounded

splits
>                     splitfutures.add(executor.submit(new SplitCallable(range, conf)));
>                 }
>                 else
>                 .....
> {code}
> which gets called one time per token and creates one thread just as many times.
> The easy fix unless there is a longer term fix I'm unaware of would be to set an upper
limit to the thread pool.
> Something like this:
> {code}
> ExecutorService executor = new ThreadPoolExecutor(0, ConfigHelper.getMaxConcurrentSplitsResolution(),
60L, TimeUnit.SECONDS, new LinkedBlockingQueue<Runnable>());
> {code}
> Shall I proceed with a patch ?
