Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-6127) vnodes don't scale to hundreds of nodes
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 21:20:26 GMT
Tupshin Harper created CASSANDRA-6127:

             Summary: vnodes don't scale to hundreds of nodes
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6127
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
         Environment: Any cluster that has vnodes and consists of hundreds of physical nodes.
            Reporter: Tupshin Harper
            Assignee: Jonathan Ellis

There are a lot of gossip-related issues related to very wide clusters that also have vnodes
enabled. Let's use this ticket as a master in case there are sub-tickets.

The most obvious symptom I've seen is with 1000 nodes in EC2 with m1.xlarge instances. Each
node configured with 32 vnodes.

Without vnodes, cluster spins up fine and is ready to handle requests within 30 minutes or

With vnodes, nodes are reporting constant up/down flapping messages with no external load
on the cluster. After a couple of hours, they were still flapping, had very high cpu load,
and the cluster never looked like it was going to stabilize or be useful for traffic.
