You experience is not uncommon. There was a recent thread on this with a variety of details on when to use row caching:tl;dr - it depends completely on use case. Small static rows work best.On Mon, Sep 2, 2013 at 2:05 PM, Sávio Teles <email@example.com> wrote:
Configuration:I'm running the Cassandra 1.2.4 and when I enable the row_cache, the system throws TImeoutExcpetion and Garbage Collection don't stop.When I disable the query returns in 700ms.
- row_cache_size_in_mb: 256
- row_cache_save_period: 0
- # row_cache_keys_to_save: 100
- row_cache_provider: SerializingCacheProvider
Why is this happening?
Thanks in advance!!
