Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1263) Push replication factor down to the replication strategy
Date Wed, 20 Oct 2010 19:34:25 GMT


Jon Hermes commented on CASSANDRA-1263:

So on keyspace instantiation, I expect some set of opts for a given strategy to exist, otherwise
calling getRF() will explode. Because user-def strats can require arbitrary opts, I can't
easily verify that they exist*, and I can't guarantee that system_create_keyspace() will not
explode (which is a non-desired side effect). 

Furthermore, I have to call getRF() is every place in the code that we ask for the instance
RF, and I can't guarantee that getRF() is non-trivial (and it runs in tight loops). Caching
the getRF() call is a hefty chunk of code, and then I need to reset the cached value if the
KSMD changes during runtime, which is another hefty chunk of code.

*It is possible to make every strat implement an interface method for `List<String>

> Currently the replication factor is in the keyspace metadata.  As we've added the datacenter
shard strategy, the replication factor becomes more computed by the replication strategy.
 It seems reasonable to therefore push the replication factor for the keyspace down to the
replication strategy so that it can be handled in one place.

strategy a member variable of keyspace metadata instead of just a quasi singleton giving the
replication strategy state for each keyspace.  That makes it able to have the replication
