Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8907) Raise GCInspector alerts to WARN
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:24:53 GMT


Adam Hattrell commented on CASSANDRA-8907:

Sorry only just come back to this.

I was only talking about those 200ms pauses.  Anything that large will be causing serious
disruption to any enterprise level user.
To my mind these should be WARN level regardless of your environment.  They are "bad" by default.

I see some users that aim for a 5 ms SLA.  For them a 200ms pause is probably way to high
- they would actually like to know about much smaller so a tunable level would actually be

With regards to users reading their logs - most admins set alerts to fire when they get WARN
and ERROR.  Having to write manual greps to try and pull out GCInspectors (or dropped mutations
which is another bugbear) is a pita - and really shouldn't be necessary.

> I'm fairly regularly running into folks wondering why their applications are reporting
down nodes.  Yet, they report, when they grepped the logs they have no WARN or ERRORs listed.
> Nine times out of ten, when I look through the logs we see a ton of ParNew or CMS gc
pauses occurring similar to the following:
> INFO [ScheduledTasks:1] 2013-03-07 18:44:46,795 (line 122) GC for ConcurrentMarkSweep:
1835 ms for 3 collections, 2606015656 used; max is 10611589120
> INFO [ScheduledTasks:1] 2013-03-07 19:45:08,029 (line 122) GC for ParNew:
9866 ms for 8 collections, 2910124308 used; max is 6358564864
> To my mind these should be WARN's as they have the potential to be significantly impacting
the clusters performance as a whole.
