Subject Nodes Flapping in the RIng
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2011 09:07:04 GMT
We have a new 6-node cluster running 0.6.13 (Due to some client side issues
we need to be on 0.6x for time being) that we are injecting data into and
ran into some issues with nodes going down and then up quickly in the
ring.  All nodes are effected and we have rules out the network layer.

It happens on all nodes and seems related to GC or mtable flushes.  We had
things stable but after a series of data migrations we saw some swapping so
we tuned to max heap down and this helped with swapping but the flapping
still persists.

The systems have 6-cores and 24 GB ram, max heap is at 12G.   We are using
the Parallel GC colector for throughput.

Our run file for starting cassandra looks like this:

exec 2>&1

ulimit -n 262144

cd /opt/cassandra-0.6.13

exec chpst -u cassandra java \
  -ea \
  -Xms4G \
  -Xmx12G \
  -XX:TargetSurvivorRatio=90 \
  -XX:+PrintGCDetails \
  -XX:+AggressiveOpts \
  -XX:+UseParallelGC \
  -XX:+CMSParallelRemarkEnabled \
  -XX:SurvivorRatio=128 \
  -XX:MaxTenuringThreshold=0 \
  -Djava.rmi.server.hostname= \ \ \ \
  -Dcassandra-foreground=yes \
  -Dstorage-config=/etc/cassandra \
  -cp '/etc/cassandra:/opt/cassandra-0.6.13/lib/*' \
  org.apache.cassandra.thrift.CassandraDaemon <&-

Our storage conf like this for the mem/disk stuff:

  <!-- Memory, Disk, and Performance









Any thoughts on this would be really interesting.
