A large portion of my cherry tomatoes are cracking and splitting just before they get ripe.

Temperatures fluctuating and uneven watering are common causes of tomato split. Much of that is out of a gardeners control.
You can harvest when they are slightly less then ripe and this can help with the crop.
Here is a link with more information.
