Subject Building SSTables with SSTableSimpleUnsortedWriter
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2012 23:59:47 GMT
Can anyone comment on best practices for setting the buffer size used by
SSTableSimpleUnsortedWriter?  I'm presently using 100MB, but for some of the
larger column families I'm working with, this can result in hundreds of
SSTables.  After streaming to Cassandra via sstableloader, there's a fair
amount of compaction work to do.

What are the benefits and consequences of going with a higher buffer size?
