You could enable a slow query log and then trace single queries couldn't you?

I can’t trace selects on the application tables unfortunately. The application is Usergrid, and it stores the data in binary. We have little control over Usergrid-created data.

Do you see difference when tracing the selects?

Application tables use LeveledCompactionStrategy. At first, counter tables were created by default SizeTieredCompactionStrategy, but we changed them to LeveledCompactionStrategy then.

 

compaction = { 'class' : 'org.apache.cassandra.db.compaction.LeveledCompactionStrategy', 'sstable_size_in_mb' : 512 }

Do you have a different compaction strategy on the counter tables?

We are using Cassandra (3.7) counter tables in our application, and there are about 10 counter tables. The counter tables are in a separate keyspace with RF=3 (total 10 nodes). The tables are read-heavy, for each web request to the application, we read at least 20 counter values. The counter reads are very slow comparing to the other application data reads from cassandra, and sometimes the reads put extra heavy CPU load on some nodes.

 

Are there any tips, or best practices for increasing the performance of counter tables?
