Subject RE: Row Cache hit issue
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2017 05:38:02 GMT

additionally, with saved (key) caches, we had some sort of corruption (I think, for whatever
reason) once. So, if you see something like that upon Cassandra startup:

INFO [main] 2017-01-04 15:38:58,772 (line 114) reading saved cache /var/opt/xxx/cassandra/saved_caches/ks-cf-KeyCache-b.db
ERROR [main] 2017-01-04 15:38:58,891 (line 571) Exception encountered

                at org.apache.cassandra.service.CassandraDaemon.activate(
                at org.apache.cassandra.service.CassandraDaemon.main(

resulting in Cassandra going OOM, with a “reading saved cache” log entry close before
the OOM, you may have hit some sort of corruption. Workaround is to physically delete the
saved cache file and Cassandra will start up just fine.

Hi Peng,

C* periodically saves cache to disk, to solve cold start problem. If row_cache_save_period=0,
it means C* does not save cache to disk. But the cache is still working, if it's enabled in
table schema, just the cache will be empty after restart.

And we are using C* 2.1.18.

Subject:  Row Cache hit issue

Dear All,

The default row_cache_save_period=0,looks Row Cache does not work in this situation?
but we can still see the row cache hit.

Row Cache              : entries 202787, size 100 MB, capacity 100 MB, 3095293 hits, 6796801
requests, 0.455 recent hit rate, 0 save period in seconds

Could anyone please explain this?

Peng Xiao
