> Here is a question from Adam Silberstein who is having trouble writing this list:
> "I'm running on a particular cluster of machines and seeing worse than expected performance.
 I've run on a different, but identical, cluster of machines and gotten about 2-4x better
throughput and latency.  I've checked all of the configuration settings and they are all the
same.  The only thing I observe that looks odd is the memory usage by each region server.
 I've allocated 6 GB heap space to each.  There is a total of 20GB of records on each.  When
I use "top" to observe memory usage, I see that the region server process does have 6GB of
virtual memory.  When I start running a workload, I can see the amount of resident memory
climbing.  However, it always stops at 2GB.  Since I have 20 GB on each region server, I'd
expect the process to use all the memory allocated it
> "Is there a reasonable explanation for why it stops at 2GB, and/or has anyone seen this
> I took a look at the cache code and I see that it has an int for maximum size in the
constructor argument though internally its using a long for maximum size.  I wonder if this
is the issue?
