Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-515) Gossiper misses first updates when restarting a node

>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis

>            Priority: Minor

> Easy way to reproduce:
> Start node A.
> Start node B, with autobootstrap=false.
> Kill B, wipe data dir, and restart (still w/ autobootstrap=false).
> A will show B as down, with its old token.  (B will see both nodes correctly.)
> This appears to be because when you wipe data dir, generation restarts at 1.  (This is
not just operator error; besides during testing, this could arise if a node dies completely
and has to be replaced.)  Then gossip state is ignored until the new heartbeat is larger than
the one previously reached.
> It appears that initializing the generation to seconds-since-epoch would fix this.
