Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-2338) C* consistency level needs to be pluggable
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2011 00:16:30 GMT


Peter Schuller commented on CASSANDRA-2338:

I definitely agree that out-of-the-box usability is an important concern, and I never meant
to imply one should complicate the base use-case beyond the current consistency levels. I
also agree about CL.TWO/THREE being questionable (that's why I neer submitted a ticket for
it until hinting that it might be acceptable). That said, I definitely think it would be good
to avoid the need to patch cassandra - something out-of-the-box that allows created configurability
would be nice. Maybe something along the lines of NTS with an API that allows references to
e.g. named custom consistency levels?

where normal operations only happen in the first DC (e.g. no writes/reads happen in the remove
DC under normal operation) neither LOCAL_QUORUM or EACH_QUORUM really suffices.

> LOCAL_QUORUM doesn't provide any guarantee that data is in the remote DC.
> EACH_QUORUM requires that both nodes in the remote DC are up.
> It would be useful in some situations to be able to specify a strategy where LOCAL_QUORUM
is used for the local DC and at least one in a remote DC (and/or at least in *each* remote
