nodetool tablehistograms shows table performance statistics over the past fifteen minutes, including read/write latency, partition size, cell count, and number of SSTables. Use this tool to analyze performance and tune individual tables and ensure that the percent latency level meets the SLA for the data stored in the table.


For example, to get statistics for the DSE Search wiki demo solr table, use this command:

nodetool tablehistograms wiki solr
