Subject Re: Poor key cache hit rate

You should not use the row cache and the key vacumed on the same cf. If
that is what you are doing it explains your numbers. Some docs suggest you
can use them together but in practice I have seen when this is done the key
cache rate drops to near 0.

been seeing a terrible key cache hit rate (around 1-3%) with a 98% row
cache hit rate.  The seed node appears to take higher traffic than the
other nodes (approximately twice) but I believe I have astyanax configured
properly with ring describe and token aware.  Any ideas or steps on how to
debug?  I also see high GC load.  Perhaps I need more nodes?
