Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2045) Simplify HH to decrease read load when nodes come back
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 21:27:43 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-2045:

It's a tradeoff -- storing the full mutation would be a much bigger hit on writes.  Since
we store hints on other replicas, storing just a "pointer" is almost free.

when we were doing the more expensive HH of storing the hint + row on non-replica nodes, we
saw a lot of cascading failures; this would be a similar bump in extra work done when HH kicks
in, so that scares me.

> Currently when HH is enabled, hints are stored, and when a node comes back, we begin
sending that node data. We do a lookup on the local node for the row to send. To help reduce
read load (if a node is offline for long period of time) we should store the data we want
forward the node locally instead. We wouldn't have to do any lookups, just take byte[] and
send to the destination.
