Patrick McFadin commented on CASSANDRA-6487:

[~martin.grotzke] and [~pragone] Sorry! I just caught these comments. 

Valid points on a single partition and I think it warrants a change in the way we log WARN
and ERROR for batches. The original intent was to prevent horrible anti-patterns on multi-partition
batches. In the case of a single partition update, the impact is only in network payload size.
Since there is no need for the coordinator to track all of the mutations across the batch
partitions, the load is much less. 

I'll make an updated ticket to reflect that difference. 

Thanks for the comments and raising this issue.

> Large batches on a coordinator can cause a lot of node stress. I propose adding a WARN
log entry if batch sizes go beyond a configurable size. This will give more visibility to
operators on something that can happen on the developer side. 
> New yaml setting with 5k default.
> {{# Log WARN on any batch size exceeding this value. 5k by default.}}
> {{# Caution should be taken on increasing the size of this threshold as it can lead to
node instability.}}
> {{batch_size_warn_threshold: 5k}}
