Subject running cassandra on 8 GB servers
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 19:35:51 GMT
For one project I will need to run cassandra on following dedicated servers:

Single CPU XEON 4 cores no hyper-threading, 8 GB RAM, 12 TB locally
attached HDD's in some kind of RAID, visible as single HDD.

I can do cluster of 20-30 such servers, may be even more.

The data will be huge, I am estimating 4-6 TB per server. I know this is
best, but those are my resources.

Currently I am testing with one of such servers, except HDD is 300 GB.
Every 15-20 hours, I get out of heap memory, e.g. something like:

ERROR [Thrift:641] 2013-04-11 11:25:19,563 (line 164)
Exception in thread Thread[Thrift:641,5,main]
 INFO [StorageServiceShutdownHook] 2013-04-11 11:25:39,915 (line 116) Stop listening to thrift clients

(line 217) Error occurred during processing of message.
java.util.concurrent.RejectedExecutionException: ThreadPoolExecutor has
shut down

Anyone have some advices about better utilization of such servers?
