Subject How to reduce the memory consumed by cassandra (so as to prevent crashes & OOMs) ?
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2012 17:50:05 GMT
I'm running a 4 nodes cassandra cluster of VMware ubuntu instances each
768MB memory (on a single machine for development purposes). I need to
reduce heap size appropriately as  my nodes have been crashing at times
with OOMs. How do I configure for this ? I think I would need to make some
tweaks with MAX_HEAP_SIZE & HEAP_NEWSIZE in !? but I not
sure what should be the correct values I should put here for my case.

What would have been the values for these parameters in case I had just
512mb for each node?
