Subject Flush and compaction happens frequently
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2010 06:33:19 GMT
I have a 8 nodes cluster, MemtableThreshold is 2 GB/CF, MemtableObjectsCount
is 1.2, heap (min/max) is 30 GB and only 4 ColumnFamilies

It appears from system.log that flush happens for every < 50 operations
(read or write) and compaction is happening very frequently and i could see
lots of sstable is getting created (with smaller size). For a just 1000
inserts, i could see around 20 sstables.

When i change the MemtableThreshold to 1 GB/CF, everything works as desired.

Any idea, what could be the problem when i specify MemtableThreshold to 2
GB/CF even though i specified the large heap?

Mubarak Seyed.
