Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1072) Increment counters
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 19:08:26 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-1072:

You left an important part of the sentence. This important part is 'that depends on CL'. Of
course network partitions can occur. Actually what I'm proposing is all about handling better
network partitions. It aims to establish the exact same behavior and consistency level insurances
that Cassandra already ensures. The 'number of acks' will be equal to what you, the client
issuing the write, ask for when specifying the consistency level.

Moreover I've never suggested wait indefinitely. Again, it that wasn't clear is really just
what Cassandra already do, that is, send the update to all replica and wait for only as many
responses as the client has asked you to. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

As for the last sentence of you comment, I'm not sure I understand it. But I sure don't meant
to propose a complex workarounds, quite the contrary, and right now, I think this is neither
really complex, nor a workaround as this addresses real problems. 

But don't get me wrong, I appreciate your questions/concerns as there could very well be something
wrong in my reasoning.
