On startup cassandra exits without error or creating logs


Attempting to start with one of:

  • service dse start
  • /etc/init.d/dse start
  • cassandra -f

will fail, and no error will be reported.

No log files are updated in /var/log/cassandra/




There is an issue with the OpenJDK which can lead to a Segmentation Fault within the Cassandra process.

See Cassandra-2441.


Install the sun JVM.
