Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-397) bootstrap and ringcache
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2009 17:42:32 GMT


Sandeep Tata commented on CASSANDRA-397:

The echo-ing of writes happens whether you're the bootstrap coordinator or just another node
in the ring (getStorageEndPointsForWrite fix in 375). The only requirement is that the node
doing the write has discovered the bootstrapping node. Since this fact is advertised on gossip,
all nodes know who is bootstrapping.

(Writes that sneak in before the node has discovered the bootstrapping node will not be sent,
but such is life when we have eventual consistency.)

> One solution would be to have the node that is providing data to the new, bootstrapping
node, echo writes to the new node.  Currently, the coordinator node is in charge of including
the new node as an "extra" replica, but if a fat client is using messagingservice directly
with RingCache that doesn't work.
