Kurt, thank you very much for your answer! Your remark on GC totally
changed my thoughts on cassandra resources usage.

So.. more questions to the respective audience underway.

What is generally considered as

1) "too large" page size,
2)"large" page size
3) "normal conditions" page size?

How exactly fetch size affects CPU? Can too large page size provoke severe
CPU usage for constant GC, thus affecting Cassandra performance on read
requests (because CPU basically doesn't work on other tasks, while it's
constantly GCing)?

Thank you all very much!
