Subject Large partitions
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2018 16:42:32 GMT

Based on the information found here
the recommended limit for a partition size is 100MB. Even though, DataStax
clearly states that this is a rule of thumb, some team members are claiming
that our Cassandra *Write *is very slow because the partitions on some
tables are over 100MB. I know for a fact that this rule has changed since
2.2. Starting Cassandra 2.2 and up, the new rule of thumb for partition
size is *a few hundreds MB*, given the improvement on the architecture.
Now, I am unable to find the reference (maybe I got it at a Cassandra
training by DataStax). I would like to share it with my team. Did anyone
come across this information? If yes, can you please share it?
