Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-2947) New nodes always think dead nodes are alive
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 20:24:10 GMT


Brandon Williams resolved CASSANDRA-2947.

    Resolution: Duplicate

I tested against the 0.8 branch and it doesn't reproduce.  I suspect something I did in CASSANDRA-2496
resolved it.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.8.2

> If a new node is brought up while a node is down, it will think it is up forever.
> To reproduce:
> Take nodes A, B and C.
> 1. Bring up nodes A and B in a cluster
> 2. Take down B and wait for A to mark it as down
> 3. Bring up C with A as a seed
> 4. nodetool ring on C shows all 3 nodes as up and never marks B as down
> The problem is that the failure detector never learns about node B - is never
called for B.  This means requests are constantly routed to B from C and timeout, but they
should fail with UnavailableException.
> The attached (hack) patch appears to fix it, but I expect the problem is actually elsewhere
in the gossip code.
