Subject Re: Building a brand new cluster and readying it for production -- advice needed
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 21:40:51 GMT
I am 1.0.7. I would suggest that. The memtable and JAMM stuff is very
stable. I would not setup 0.8.X because with 1.1 coming soon 0.8.X is
not likely to see to many more minor releases. You can always do
better with more RAM up to the size of your data, having more ram them
data size will not help noticeably . The off heap row cache can use
this and the OS can cache disk blocks with it.
