Subject [jira] Assigned: (CASSANDRA-1428) Rejecting keyspace creation when RF > N is incorrect
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2010 02:25:33 GMT


Jonathan Ellis reassigned CASSANDRA-1428:

    Assignee: Gary Dusbabek

So we all agree that creation is fine, so let's allow that.  (Less sure that Cliff agrees
that we should reject writes that can't satisfy the RF, but I won't argue that point unless
there's actually something to disagree about. :)

> Disallowing keyspace creation when RF > N is semantically incorrect and makes both
scaling a cluster up and down more difficult than it should be.  This is compounded by the
current lack of any API methods to change the replication factor.  Most dynamo style systems
allow RF to be set > N for smaller clusters.  The cluster will behave as if RF = N until
enough nodes are added such that RF < N.
