Managing metadata in memory

Managing metadata in memory

Tuning memory to retain or eject meta data is set when creating or editing the bucket properties.

To specify the bucket memory size:

  1. Navigate to Data Buckets > Create New Data Bucket (new bucket) or Data Buckets > bucket_name link > Edit (existing bucket).
  2. In Memory Size panel > Cache Metadata section, specify either to retain metadata in memory or not.
    Retaining metadata in memory needs more RAM, however, provides better performance for reads. Not retaining metadata in memory reduces RAM requirements.
  3. Click Save .
