Subject [Cassandra Wiki] Update of "Operations" by JonathanEllis
Date Wed, 09 Dec 2009 19:33:35 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cassandra Wiki" for change notification.

The "Operations" page has been changed by JonathanEllis.
The comment on this change is: nodeprobe removetoken.


  Cassandra is smart enough to transfer data from the nearest source node(s), if your !EndpointSnitch
is configured correctly.  So, the new node doesn't need to be in the same datacenter as the
primary replica for the Range it is bootstrapping into, as long as another replica is in the
datacenter with the new one.
  == Removing nodes entirely ==
- You can take a node out of the cluster with `nodeprobe decommission.`  The node must be
live at decommission time (until CASSANDRA-564 is done).
+ You can take a node out of the cluster with `nodeprobe decommission` to a live node, or
`nodeprobe removetoken` to remove a dead one.
  Again, no data is removed automatically, so if you want to put the node back into service
and you don't need the data on it anymore, it should be removed manually.
