Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2364) Record dynamic snitch latencies for counter writes
Date Tue, 22 Mar 2011 18:18:05 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-2364:

Disagree that we want to pollute read latency info w/ writes (which are almost impossible
to slow down, so you're basically just measuring network latency and mixing that low-value
info w/ the high-value signal the reads).

Also: always choosing the closest node to be the write coordinator seems like you lose the
benefits of counter partitioning.

Suggest using static snitch info to prefer a coordinator from the local DC and randomly pick
from those.

> The counter code chooses a single replica to coordinate a write, meaning that it should
be subject to dynamic snitch latencies like a read would be. This already works when there
are reads going on, because the dynamic snitch read latencies are used to pick a node to coordinate,
but when there are no reads going on (such as during a backfill) the latencies do not adjust.
