Subject RE: 1.1 not removing commit log files?
Date Mon, 21 May 2012 08:49:32 GMT

In 1.1 the commitlog files are pre-allocated with files of 128MB. (
This should however not exceed your commitlog size in Cassandra.yaml.

commitlog_total_space_in_mb: 4096

Kind regards,

Subject: 1.1 not removing commit log files?

The commit log drives on my nodes keep slowly filling up.  I don't see any errors in my logs
that are indicating any issues that I can map to this issue.

Is this how 1.1 is supposed to work now?  Previous versions seemed to keep this drive at a
minimum as it flushed.

/dev/mapper/mpathf     25G   21G  4.2G  83% /opt/cassandra/commitlog
