>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Matt Stump
> The cassandra.yaml and documentation provide guidance on tuning concurrent readers or
concurrent writers to system resources (cores, spindles). Testing performed by both myself
and customers demonstrates no benefit for thread pool sizes above 64 in size, and for thread
pools greater than 128 in size a decrease in throughput. This is due to thread scheduling
and synchronization bottlenecks within Cassandra. 
> Additionally, for lower end systems reducing these thread pools provides very little
benefit because the bottleneck is typically moved to either IO or CPU.
> I propose that we set the default value to 64 (current default is 32), and remove all
guidance/recommendations regarding tuning.
> This recommendation may change in 3.0, but that would require further experimentation.
