US View ProfileSend MessageKevinZheng_GCS PEGA replied to AlexM001Hi this is from an internal post which should answer your question: Cassandra heap can be configured via the following prconfig.xml settings. Note that you need to set both properties if you want to override the Cassandra defaults. <env name="dnode/cassandra_heap_new_size" value="400M" /> <env name="dnode/cassandra_max_heap_size" value="2G" /> By default Cassandra uses the following rules to calculate what the heap should be # set max heap size based on the following # max(min(1/2 ram, 1024MB), min(1/4 ram, 8GB)) # calculate 1/2 ram and cap to 1024MB # calculate 1/4 ram and cap to 8192MB # pick the max Heap new size should be 100MB*number of cores.
