Subject Re: CMS GC initial-mark taking 6 seconds , bad?
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 13:38:02 GMT
Hello Aaron,

I happen to have 48GB on each machines I use in the cluster. Can I 
assume that I can't really use all of this memory productively? Do you 
have any suggestion related to that? Can I run more than one instance on 
Cassandra on the same box (using different ports) to take advantage of 
this memory, assuming the disk has enough bandwidth?

Thanks,
Maxim
