Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10821) OOM Killer terminates Cassandra when Compactions use too much memory then won't restart
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2015 23:15:46 GMT


Carl Yeksigian commented on CASSANDRA-10821:

The restart issue you are having is caused by thinking that a cache is an SSTable.This is
probably caused by {{saved_cache_directory}} being a subdirectory of one of the {{data_file_directories}}.
I've created CASSANDRA-10902 to track that issue.

That doesn't explain the OOM, though.

getting killed for Linux OOM. Priam attempts to restart the nodes, but they fail because of
corrupted saved_cahce files.
