I don't have gevent or libev installed. Following code is run in my Python shell:
> from cassandra.cluster import Cluster
> cluster = Cluster(protocol_version=1)
> session = cluster.connect(keyspace='foo_keyspace')
I monitored CPU utilization via htop, and I found Python process started using CPU constantly as the connection establised. It seems AsyncoreConnection is looping in a high frequency for events under the hoop. This caused a high load average on my server.
As I don't see any documentation mention about this(sorry if I miss something), I'd like to ask is it a known issue when using asyncore for event loop?
