I am using the 1.1 datastax linux (centos) installer for the cassandra service.
The cassandra service is holding the past data and not flushing periodically even thought the commit log sync period is timed out. Please let me know any other setting are required to check.
Below are the setting i use in cassandra.yaml
If i change the commitlog segment size to a lower value than the commit log folder size, then only the cassandra is clearing the commitlogs.
Please help me, i am not sure whether the commitlog segment size requires changes to the value.
