Subject Re: mslab enabled jvm crash

I have finally been able to spend enough time to digest/test
all recommendations and get this under control. I wanted to thank Stack,
Jack Levin, and Ted Dunning for their input.

Basically our memory was being pushed to the limit and the JVM does not
like/can not handle this. We are successfully using Todd's MSLAB enabled on
u25 and have set parnew to 128m, increased the heap to 10g, and increased
our block size 4x to 256k to reduce the size of the store file index (thanks
Jack for pointing this out). The combination of all of these changes reduce
significantly the pressure on memory and now we are getting more throughput
(40k writes/sec/node) sustained with no CMF errors (I expect to see one 5
min after hitting send on this email...).

We are also going to move to bulk inserts where we can, which should help as
well. The decreased performance of reads due to the block size increase is
going to be the next challenge. Thanks everyone for your help, I am
a believer again.
