Subject Re: What time range does nodetool cfhistograms use?
Date Sun, 16 Nov 2014 18:05:22 GMT
Hi Clint,

The values of SSTables, Write Latency and Read Latency will be reset on
node start/restart and after running the cfhistograms command itself.

The values of Row Size and Column Count are calculated at startup and
then re-evaluated during compaction.
