Subject Re: row cache re-fill very slow
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 21:45:16 GMT

i'm using the off-heap ( serialised ) row cache and front the entire thing with memcached
in the middle layer ( to prevent the most actively requested rows from pressuring the Cassandra
heap ). If you ask how much the pointers to the off-heap memory will take.. time will tell
( it should be easy to calculate though ) It's been working out great.

Just curious Andras, how can you manage such a big row cache (10-15GB currently)? By recommendation,
you will have 10% of your heap as row cache, so your heap is over 100G?? The largest datastax
recommends is 8GB and it seems to be a hardcoded limit in ( # calculate 1/4
ram and cap to 8192MB). Does you GC hold up with such a big heap? In my experience, full GC
could take over 20 seconds for such a big heap.
