Subject RE: what is more important (RAM vs Cores)
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 09:17:13 GMT
Hi there,
My application is uses Cassandra to store abstracted sensor data from a sensor network in
large building (up to 3000 sensors).
For now I am starting one node in one floor of the building, for the future it will definitely
be a cluster. Some of the sensors have up 16HZ sampling rate.

And now I want to make a decision if I have to focus on big RAM or large number of cores.

Sure it depends... but IMHO 6 GB is suboptimal for big data because it means 1,5 GB or  2
GB for Cassandra.
Maybe you could elaborate your use case. You really want a one node cluster ?
