This is the closest I can find in Jira https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4478

It's a pretty handy tool to have in your tool kit, specially when you start to have over 1 billion rows per node.

I heard a rumor that index_interval is going away?  What is the replacement for this?  (we have been having to play with this setting a lot lately as too big and it gets slow yet too small and cassandra uses way too much RAM…we are still trying to find the right balance with this setting).

Thanks,
