Cassandra is heavily multithreaded. If the load demands it will make use of your 8 cores.
I dont know the startup code, but I would assume it would be parallelized if neccessary/possible. Afaik there were optimizations already made to reduce the startup time. Therefore I would assume any optimizations left would not be so easy.
Thanks !I have seen that during startup stage Cassandra uses only one core, is there a way we can speed up the startup process ?Hello All,We are thinking of going with Cassandra on a 8 core machine, are there any optimizations that can help us here ?
