Subject Re: Cassandra terminates with OutOfMemory (OOM) error
Date Sat, 22 Jun 2013 02:29:05 GMT
Looks like you are putting lot of pressure on the heap by doing a slice
query on a large row.
Do you have lot of deletes/tombstone on the rows? That might be causing a
problem.
Also why are you returning so many columns as once, you can use auto
paginate feature in Astyanax.

Also do you see lot of GC happening?
