Depends on your traffic :-)
cassandra-env.sh will try to allocate heap with
following formula if
you don't specify MAX_HEAP_SIZE.
1. calculate 1/2 of RAM on your system and cap
2. calculate 1/4 of RAM on your system and cap
3. pick the larger value
So how about to start with the default? You will
need to monitor the
heap usage at first.

Thanks, I think I don't
need high consistency(as per my app
I might be fine with
CL.ONE instead of quorum, so I think
going to be ok with a 2
node cluster initially..
Could you guys also
recommend some minimum memory to start with ?
that would depend on my
workload as well, but that's why I am asking

If you run your
service with 2 node and RF=2, your data
your service will not be redundant. ( You
can't stop both of nodes )
If your service doesn't need strong
consistency ( allow cassandra returns
"old" data after
write, and possible write lost ), you can
for read and write
to keep availability.
