Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8150) Revaluate Default JVM tuning parameters
Date Thu, 04 Jun 2015 16:41:42 GMT


Matt Stump commented on CASSANDRA-8150:

We should probably close this ticket. As [~jeromatron] stated very few optimizations with
CMS appear to be generally applicable. I think the existing defaults for tenuring threshold,
survivor space, and new heap aren't good, but rather than tune CMS I would rather use G1 as
part of CASSANDRA-7486 and allow it to self tune. Getting CMS to perform for peak throughput
whilst minimizing latency is unfortunately an application specific and iterative process.

> It's been found that the old twitter recommendations of 100m per core up to 800m is harmful
and should no longer be used.
> Instead the formula used should be 1/3 or 1/4 max heap with a max of 2G. 1/3 or 1/4 is
debatable and I'm open to suggestions. If I were to hazard a guess 1/3 is probably better
for releases greater than 2.1.
