    Is the article applicable for  C*  1.2  also  ?

    The heapspace_calculator script found in   Heap Space Calculator does not calculate the current key cache size, using the cfstats output, unfortunately.

    On newer DSE versions, as per CASSANDRA-6360, we need to use   nodetool -c cfhistograms <keyspace> <cfname>   for all KS/CF's to use it with avg_row_size_calculator  tool  

    One way to accomplish this is running the following bash:

    function runCmd(){
    echo "$@"
    for i in $(echo "describe keyspaces;" | cqlsh) ; do
    for j in $(echo "use \"${i}\"; describe tables;" | cqlsh) ; do
    runCmd nodetool -c cfhistograms ${i} ${j}
    done | tee nodetool_cfhistograms.txt

    And then use the output file with the row size calculator
