Subject [jira] Created: (CASSANDRA-833) fix consistencylevel during bootstrap
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 17:45:28 GMT
fix consistencylevel during bootstrap

                 Key: CASSANDRA-833
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.5
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
            Assignee: Jonathan Ellis
             Fix For: 0.6

As originally designed, bootstrap nodes should *always* get *all* writes under any consistencylevel,
so when bootstrap finishes the operator can run cleanup on the old nodes w/o fear that he
might lose data.

but if a bootstrap operation fails or is aborted, that means all writes will fail until the
ex-bootstrapping node is decommissioned.  so starting in CASSANDRA-722, we just ignore dead
nodes in consistencylevel calculations.

but this breaks the original design.  CASSANDRA-822 adds a partial fix for this (just adding
bootstrap targets into the RF targets and hinting normally), but this is still broken under
certain conditions.  The real fix is to consider consistencylevel for two sets of nodes:

  1. the RF targets as currently existing (no pending ranges)
  2.  the RF targets as they will exist after all movement ops are done

If we satisfy CL for both sets then we will always be in good shape.

I'm not sure if we can easily calculate 2. from the current TokenMetadata, though.
