  • 20. YES: This means you need to change tokens on most of the nodes in your cluster whenever you add a node.
  • 21. Writes are fast. Reads keep getting slower.
  • 22. Writes are fast. Reads keep getting slower. WTF?
  • 23. iostat -x look at %util

  • 29. YOU ARE OUT OF DISK BANDWIDTH
  • 30. You can:
  • 31. Throttle reads at clients
  • 32. Adjust memtable settings (size/ops/time)
  • 33. Less frequent memtable flush Less frequent compaction Less disk bandwidth demand
  • 34. Add more nodes
  • 35. Add more spindles per node
  • 36. Switch to SSDs
  • 37. I inserted a bunch of data. Now my nodes are flapping.
  • 38. I inserted a bunch of data. Now my nodes are flapping. WTF?
  • 39. iostat -x look at %util
  • 40. vmstat look at swap
  • 41. INFO 13:27:35,309 DiskAccessMode 'auto' determined to be mmap, indexAccessMode is mmap
  • 42. mmap() in Cassandra consumes up to 2GB.
  • 43. mmap() in Cassandra consumes up to 2GB. Per segment.
  • 44. NOT tracked as JVM heap. *See: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1214
  • 45. NOT tracked as JVM heap. JVM heap not locked in memory. *See: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-1214
  • 46. When your data set exceeds memory, this is likely.
  • 47. Swapping can delay gossip long enough to cause a node to be marked down.
  • 48. <DiskAccessMode>mmap_index_only</ DiskAccessMode> or disk_access_mode: mmap_index_only
  • 49. On Linux: swappiness=0
  • 50. INFO 13:27:35,309 DiskAccessMode isstandard, indexAccessMode is mmap
  • 51. Most people start troubleshooting problems interpreting shadows on the wall.
  • 52. You can now see the path and the sunlight outside.
  • 53. YOU CAN HELP!
  • 54. What things have confused you?
  • 55. What problems have you solved?
  • 56. What tools have you used to solve them?
  • 57. GET INVOLVED!
