Subject how to reduce latency?
Date Wed, 13 Jun 2012 11:39:48 GMT
I have three nodes running cassandra 0.7.4 about two years, as showed below:
10.x.x.x      Up     Normal  138.07 GB       33.33%  0

10.x.x.x     Up     Normal  143.97 GB       33.33%
10.x.x.x      Up     Normal  137.33 GB       33.33%

the commitlog and data directory are separated on different disk(Western
Digital WD RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB).

as the data size grow the reads and write time are keep increasing, slow
down the website frequently.

Based on the experience that every time using nodetool to maintain the
nodes, could cost a very long time, consume a lot system resource(always
ended nowhere),  and cause my web service very unstable, I really have no
idea what to do, upgrade seems not solving this either, I have a newer
cluster with have the same configuration but version is 1.0.2, also got
increasing latency, and the new system also suffering unstable problem...

just wondering does that means I must add more nodes(which is also a
painful and slow path)?
