>                 Key: CASSANDRA-8771
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>            Reporter: Ariel Weisberg
>              Labels: commitlog
> For discussion
> Commit log segment recycling introduces a lot of complexity in the existing code.
> CASSANDRA-8729 is a side effect of commit log segment recycling and addressing it will
require memory management code and thread coordination for memory that the filesystem will
no longer handle for us.
> There is some discussion about what storage configurations actually benefit from preallocated
files. Fast random access devices like SSDs, or non-volatile write caches etc. make the distinction
not that great. 
> I haven't measured any difference in throughput for bulk appending vs overwriting although
it was pointed out that I didn't test with concurrent IO streams.
> What would it take to make removing commit log segment recycling acceptable? Maybe a
benchmark on a spinning disk that measures the performance impact of preallocation when there
are other IO streams?
