[~rushman]: Yes, I have a materialized view on one of the tables. I could 
eventually afford loosing it. Maybe I will drop it and retry with the same

> Hi, I face an issue when bootstrapping a Node having less than 100GB RAM on 
> our 10 Node C* 3.11.1 Cluster.
> During bootstrap, when I watch the cassandra.log I observe a growth in JVM 
> Heap Old Gen which gets not significantly freed up any more.
> I know that JVM collects on Old Gen only when really needed. I can see 
> collections, but there is always a remainder which seems to grow forever 
> without ever getting freed.
> After the Node successfully Joined the Cluster, I can remove the extra RAM I 
> have given it for bootstrapping without any further effect.
> It feels like Cassandra will not forget about every single byte streamed over 
> the Network over time during bootstrapping, - which would be a memory leak 
> and a major problem, too.
> I was able to produce a HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError from a 56GB Node (40 GB 
> assigned JVM Heap). YourKit Profiler shows huge amount of Memory allocated 
> for org.apache.cassandra.db.Memtable (22 GB) 
> org.apache.cassandra.db.rows.BufferCell (19 GB) and java.nio.HeapByteBuffer 
> (11 GB)
