Subject Re: Determining the issues of marking node down
Date Sat, 30 Apr 2011 19:28:49 GMT
If the node is crashing with OutOfMemory it will be in the cassandra logs. Search them for
"ERROR". Alternatively if you've installed a package the stdout and stderr may be redirected
to a file called something like output.log in the same location as the log file.

You can change the logging using the file typically in the same location
as cassandra.yaml. By detail they will be logging errors and warnings though. 

What does "nodetool ring" say about the token distribution ? If you are using the OPP you
need to make sure your app is evening distributing the keys to avoid hot spots. 

Hope that helps.

Every day I see, that the same one node goes down (at different time, but every day). Then
I just run `service cassandra start` to fix that problem. system.log doesn't show me anything
strange. What are the steps to determine issues? I didn't change logging properties (and cassandra.yaml
is not far away from the default), so maybe there must be some options to be switched to debug?
