>                 Key: CASSANDRA-808
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement

>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.0
> The new SSTable format will allow for checksumming of the data file, but as it stands,
we don't have a better way to handle the situation than throwing an Exception indicating that
the data is unreadable.
> We might want to add an option (triggerable via a command line flag?) to Cassandra that
will allow for skipping of corrupted keys/blocks in SSTables, to pretend they don't exist
rather than throwing the Exception.
> An administrator could temporarily enable the option and trigger a compaction to perform
a local repair of data, or they could leave it enabled constantly for hands-off recovery.
