      Description

      Hi,

      I have this stack trace in the logs of Cassandra server (v2.1)

      ERROR [CompactionExecutor:14] 2014-10-06 23:32:02,098 CassandraDaemon.java:166 - Exception in thread Thread[CompactionExecutor:14,1,main]
      java.lang.NullPointerException: null

      It may not be critical because this error occured in the AutoSavingCache. However the line 475 is about the CFMetaData so it may hide bigger issue...

       474             CFMetaData cfm = Schema.instance.getCFMetaData(key.desc.ksname, key.desc.cfname);
       475             cfm.comparator.rowIndexEntrySerializer().serialize(entry, out);
      

      Regards,
      Eric
