Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (CASSANDRA-11528) Server Crash when select returns more than a few hundred rows
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2016 07:42:20 GMT

---------------------------------------------------------------

I thought the answer was that {code:count(*)} is a very expensive operation memory-wise, since
that would explain the behaviour. I have now stopped using {code:count(*)}.  Maybe this is
more a faq-issue, even if I really do not like that a stupid client can crash the server just
by making an expensive operation.

> While implementing a dump procedure, which did "select * from" from one table at a row,
I instantly kill the server. A simple 
> {noformat}select count(*) from {noformat} 
> also kills it. For a while, I thought the size of blobs were the cause
> I also try to only have a unique id as partition key, I was afraid a single partition
got too big or so, but that didn't change anything
> It happens every time, both from Java/Clojure and from DevCenter.
> I looked at the logs at C:\Program Files\DataStax-DDC\logs, but the crash is so quick,
so nothing is recorded there.
> There is a Java-out-of-memory in the logs, but that isn't from the time of the crash.
> It only happens for one table, it only has 15000 entries, but there are blobs and byte[]
stored there, size between 100kb - 4Mb. Total size for that table is about 6.5 GB on disk.
> I made a workaround by doing many small selects instead, each only fetching 100 rows.
> Is there a setting a can set to make the system log more eagerly, in order to at least
get a stacktrace or similar, that might help you.
> It is the prun_srv that dies. Restarting the NT service makes Cassandra run again
