Subject MemStore-Local Allocation Buffers in cassandra?
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2011 08:45:35 GMT
Hi everybody. I stumbled this morning upon this excellent blog post [1]
from the cloudera guys in which they explain how they changed the way
the memstore allocates memory to reduce fragmentation, and thus
stop-the-world garbage collections. Speaking from ignorance, memstore
sounds like memtables in cassandra. Could this technique be applied in
cassandra too?
