Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10013) Default commitlog_total_space_in_mb to 4G
Date Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:01:46 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-10013:

FWIW, standard procedure for us is for the default to match the UN-commented-out value.  Commented
out examples are generally given when the default is calculated from the environment and not
a constant.

> First, it bothers me that we default to 1G but have 4G commented out in the config.
> More importantly though is more than once I've seen this lead to dropped mutations, because
you have ~100 tables (which isn't that hard to do with OpsCenter and CFS and an application
that uses a moderately high but still reasonable amount of tables itself) and when the limit
is reached CLA flushes the oldest tables to try to free up CL space, but this in turn causes
a flush stampede that in some cases never ends and backs up the flush queue which then causes
the drops.  This leaves you thinking you have a load shedding situation (which I guess you
kind of do) but it would go away if you had just uncommented that config line.
