I've tried to = change the number of columns fetched but it did not work.=20 I have a 5 machine cluster, each with 4GB of which 3 are dedicated to = cassandra's heap, but still the all consume all of the memory and get = huge IO wait due to the amout of reads. I am running tests with 100 clients all performing multiple operations = mostly get_slice, get and multi_get, but the timeouts only occur in the = get_slice. Does this have anything to do with cassandra's ability (or lack thereof) = to keep the rows in memory? Or am I doing anything wrong? Any tips?
