Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-556) nodeprobe snapshot to support specific column families
Date Sat, 14 Apr 2012 03:43:35 GMT


Dave Brosius updated CASSANDRA-556:

    Attachment: cf_snapshots_556.diff

Added a new command 

snapshot_columnfamily keyspace columnfamily {-t snapshotname}

because hijacking the existing snapshot command is problematic, because

1) you can specify 1-n keyspaces so disambiquating what is the keyspace and what is the column
family is difficult.

2) a column family name could exist in multiple keyspaces.

applied in trunk

> It would be good to support dumping specific column families via nodeprobe for backup
> In my particular case the majority of cassandra data doesn't need to be backed up except
for a couple of column families containing user settings / profiles etc.
