>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug

>             Fix For: 3.0.x
> Netty 4.x uses {{(Fast)ThreadLocal}} instances to provide a pool of (direct) buffers
per thread ({{io.netty.buffer.PooledByteBufAllocator.PoolThreadLocalCache}}. However, these
per-thread pools need to be cleaned up when a thread terminates ({{FastThreadLocal.removeAll()}})
- which is missing.
> Although the possibility that such per-thread pools ever _need_ to be cleaned up, since
we rarely terminate threads, it still may actually happen and manifest in a late and hard
to detect out-of-memory situation. One possibility to raise such a scenario is to regularly
stop and restart the native protocol service.
