Closed, ResolvedPublic

Current status: the RESTBase and Cassandra roles are in place, but due to memory constraints for Cassandra, it is currently not possible to start the vbox VM. Concretely, JobRunner's HHVM is not left with enough RAM to create the translation cache (it needs approx 200MB for that). I'm trying to find a work-around for this.

@mobrovac, there are some tips on how to configure Cassandra to run within only ~200-300m of memory at http://opensourceconnections.com/blog/2013/08/31/building-the-perfect-cassandra-test-environment/. I have used those before with success.

We should also consider switching to the sqlite backend once that's ready.

All of the optimisations are already incorporated in the patch.

Ofc, but let's go with this until that time. VE people want it in MW-Vagrant.

The patch is now ready to be reviewed/merged.

@bd808 , this is now ready to be reviewed/merged :P
