Subject Re: Impact on latency with larger memtable
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 16:42:19 GMT
You speak of increase. Please provide your results. Specific examples, Eg
25% increase results in n% increase. Also please include number of nodes,
size of total keyspace, rep factor, etc.

Hopefully this is a 6 node cluster with several hundred gig per keyspace,
not some single node free tier box.
