This guide I wrote provides a description of the different thread pools and how to monitor them. Includes what to alert on, common issues and solutions. The documentation for these hasn’t been available and took a bit of digging in the source. http://www.evidencebasedit.com/guide-to-cassandra-thread-pools/
Gave a quick intro to tpstats as a lightning talk for a Minneapolis Cassandra meetup. Slides available on: slideshare I am fleshing out the content to describe each stage in Cassandra in more detail for an extension of this talk.
