Slow Cassandra database performance
The following warning:
Unable to lock JVM memory (ENOMEM). This can result in part of the JVM being swapped out, especially with mmapped I/O enabled
encountered in the cassandra-stderr.log file indicates insufficient memory lock settings. Even though most of the time it will not cause any problem, it may potentially affect Cassandra performance in some cases.
Increase memory lock limit by running the
ulimit command, or, if you work in Debian, modify the /etc/security/limits.conf file — change
max locked memory to
unlimited for the user under which Cassandra runs.
