Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-12739) Nodetool uses MAX_HEAP_SIZE if set
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2016 21:20:20 GMT
Brad Vernon created CASSANDRA-12739:

             Summary: Nodetool uses MAX_HEAP_SIZE if set
                 Key: CASSANDRA-12739
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Tools
            Reporter: Brad Vernon
         Attachments: cass-21_tools_xmx.patch, cass-22_tools_xmx.patch, cass-3x_tools_xmx.patch

Nodetool and other bash startup scripts load variables including MAX_HEAP_SIZE
as part of CASSANDRA-10679.  If has MAX_HEAP_SIZE set to any value the default
heap size needed for the cassandra tool to run is overridden.  

This is a problem if the using a large heap in C* i.e. 16-32G due to each instance of nodetool
or other tool will allocate large heap regardless of need and could exceed the total RAM available
on the system.

Patch removes the check for MAX_HEAP_SIZE being set and uses the default heap size needed
for each tool.
