Subject Re: delay/stall processing reads

Thanks Rob, we are using Cassandra 2.0.2, CQL3, native protocol. tpstats is
nearly all zeros from what I can tell. Even running a load of 100rps I can
only ever see 1 or 2 in the active or pending counters, never anything in
the blocked. Even in the "blocked all time" column it is zero in all cases
except for 4 flush writers that have been there for weeks. It is hard for
me to "catch it in the act" since it only lasts maybe 500ms.

Excuse my ignorance, but where would I look for the GC info? What logs
contain this? I will start looking for log files and more clues in them.
Thanks for the quick response!
