Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-743) configuration should support includes
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2010 13:56:34 GMT


Ted Zlatanov commented on CASSANDRA-743:

Here's the original context:

Given two machines with identical storage-conf.xml except for directories, for example, currently
you need two separate storage-conf.xml files with 99% identical contents.  This quickly becomes
painful if other parameters vary slightly, too.  You can see Anthony Molinaro's situation
and mine is very similar.

This patch refactors storage-conf.xml to be a single top configuration file with included
configuration sections for seeds, tuning, directories, and networking.  It all uses XML facilities
(as recommended by the XML FAQ at so no code changes
are required.

As I said, it doesn't have to go into SVN (although I think it improves the current monolithic
XML file a bit).  It can just go on the wiki as a suggestion, which I'll do at
if you reject the patch.

so Cassandra configs can be split into a generic and a machine-specific piece.  That would
make deployments easier.
