Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2264) Restore From Snapshot eg: nodetool restore [filename] | ([keyspace] [columnfamily])
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2011 08:54:37 GMT


David Boxenhorn commented on CASSANDRA-2264:

It would also be nice if we could flip a switch and check all SSTables right after they are
created. This would help us in the case where we are trying to pinpoint where bad SSTables
are entering the system. Also, if this check does not catch anything, and bad SSTables are
created anyway, we will know that the source of the corruption is exogenous.

I imagine that it would also help in testing prospective Cassandra releases...
