Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-788) Make snapshot dir location configurable
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 17:32:27 GMT


Scott White commented on CASSANDRA-788:

Understood. But couldn't one make the counter argument that by forcing snapshots to the same
volume as the live data you could end up in one of two scenarios:
1) Your snapshotted data has eaten up so much of the existing volume that cassandra fails
as it tries to add more data because there is no more disk left.
2) The live data has filled up so much of the existing volume that there is not enough room
left to do a snapshot?

It seems to me you can shoot yourself in the foot either way but having more flexibility in
which risk you are most susceptible becomes an explicit choice.

> The snapshot dir location is currently hardwired to data/snapshots. It would be more
convenient if this could be specified in a config file.
