Subject [jira] [Assigned] (CASSANDRA-1974) PFEPS-like snitch that uses gossip instead of a property file
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2011 16:06:27 GMT


Jonathan Ellis reassigned CASSANDRA-1974:

I think the biggest win is when you can automatically determine rack/dc from the environment
somehow (e.g.: ec2snitch).  Otherwise the advantage of editing a file, vs edit + rsync, is
small.  Small enough that it's probably not worth the education headache.

> Now that we have an ec2 snitch that propagates its rack/dc info via gossip from CASSANDRA-1654,
it doesn't make a lot of sense to use PFEPS where you have to rsync the property file across
all the machines when you add a node.  Instead, we could have a snitch where you specify its
rack/dc in a property file, and propagate this via gossip like the ec2 snitch.  In order to
not break PFEPS, this should probably be a new snitch.
