This /is/ our first cluster.  We’ve upgraded one-over-one since 2.0.2 (our initially deployed version), doing rolling updates across the rings. 

 

No especial resource tuning save turning off SELinux and the usual (disabling swap, separate disk for commit logs, data and the OS).

Is this your first cluster?  Have you run older versions of Cassandra?  Any specific resource tuning?

Thanks all.  We are unable to bootstrap nodes and are considering creating a fresh cluster in hopes this is some how data related.

We’re running C* 2.0.5 under CentOS 6.5 and have not noticed anything like you describe.  We have just a couple of pre-production rings (Dev and Test) meaning nothing we have has received particularly intense utilization.

We are running on CentOS 6.4 but an upgrade to 6.5 caused packets to backup on the net queue causing HUGE load spikes and cluster meltdown.  Ultimately we reverted.  Have others seen this?  Are others running CentOS 6.4/6.5?

 

Thanks

What issues are you running into with CentOS 6.4/5?  I’m running 1.2.8 on CentOS 6.3 and Java 1.7.0-25, and about to test with 1.7.latest.

Hi all,

 

    I was wondering what operating systems and versions people are running with success in production environments?  We are using C* 1.2.13 and have had issues using CentOS 6.4/6.5.  Are others using that OS?  What would people recommend?  What about Java 6 vs 7 (specific versions?!)?

 

Thanks!!!
