This topic describes steps you must take to configure the Cassandra database component for an Apigee hybrid production installation.
Configure storage and heap settings
For a production installation of Apigee hybrid, Google recommends that you add the following storage and heap settings to your overrides file and apply them to the cluster:
cassandra: ... storage: capacity: 500Gi resources: requests: cpu: 7 memory: 15Gi maxHeapSize: 8192M heapNewSize: 1200M
For more information on these property settings, see the Configuration property reference.
Add SSD storage for production
For the Cassandra database, hybrid runtime uses dynamically created persistent volumes to store data. To configure Cassandra properly for a production environment, you must configure a StorageClass definition that is backed by a solid-state drive (SSD) and make it the default class. See StorageClass configuration for detailed steps.
