Subject Re: key cache size in mb = 0 doesn't work?

SSTables in maybe?
How many rows do you have in this CF? Are you getting all columns?

What do the cassandra.db mbeans say ( hit ratio, cache requests, items etc )

but all subsequent fetches (even after fetching several other sets), it would deliver at about
120MB/sec.  This is exactly the same behavior I have observed when the key_cache_size_in_mb
was left blank.
