Subject Re: Memtables stored in which location
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 09:17:36 GMT

You r right but i too have some concerns...

Any ways , some where memtable has to be stored right, like we say memtable
data is flushed to create sstable on disk.
Exactly from which location or memory it will be getting from. is it like an
objects streams or like it is storing the values in commitlog.
my next question is , data is written to commit log. all the data is
available here, and the sstable are getting created on disk, then where and
when these memtables are coming into picture
