Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-957) convenience workflow for replacing dead node
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2010 22:40:27 GMT
convenience workflow for replacing dead node

                 Key: CASSANDRA-957
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Core, Tools
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
             Fix For: 0.8

Replacing a dead node with a new one is a common operation, but "nodetool removetoken" followed
by bootstrap is inefficient (re-replicating data first to the remaining nodes, then to the
new one) and manually bootstrapping to a token "just less than" the old one's, followed by
"nodetool removetoken" is slightly painful and prone to manual errors.

First question: how would you expose this in our tool ecosystem?  It needs to be a startup-time
option to the new node, so it can't be nodetool, and messing with the config xml definitely
takes the "convenience" out.  A one-off -DreplaceToken=XXY argument?
