Subject memtable flush thresholds
Date Mon, 12 Sep 2011 11:55:55 GMT

 I've checked the memtable flush (cassandra 0.8.4)  and it seams to me it
hapens sooner then the threshold is reached.

Here's the threshould's (the default ones calculated for a heap size of
    ColumnFamily: idx_graphable (Super)
      Key Validation Class: org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.BytesType
      Default column value validator:
      Columns sorted by:
      Row cache size / save period in seconds: 0.0/0
      Key cache size / save period in seconds: 200000.0/14400
      *Memtable thresholds: 0.5671875/1440/121 (millions of ops/minutes/MB)*
      GC grace seconds: 864000
      Compaction min/max thresholds: 4/32
      Read repair chance: 1.0
      Replicate on write: true

In the logs it seams to me none oh the thresold is reached ( definitively
minutes threshold is not reached ).

Could someone clarify it for me ?
"high-traffic column family" has a special meaning ?

Many thanks,
