Subject Row cache off-heap ?
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2013 10:40:03 GMT

We have some issue having a high read throughput. I wanted to alleviate
things by turning the row cache ON.

I set the row cache to 200 on one node and enable caching 'ALL' on the 3
most read CF. There is the effect this operation had on my JVM:

It looks like the row cache was somehow stored in-heap. I looked at my
cassandra.yaml and I have the following configuration: row_cache_provider:
SerializingCacheProvider (which should be enough to store row cache
off-heap as described above in this file: "SerializingCacheProvider
serialises the contents of the row and stores it in native memory, i.e.,
off the JVM Heap")

What's wrong ?
