Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2034) Make Read Repair unnecessary when Hinted Handoff is enabled
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2011 20:48:27 GMT


Patricio Echague commented on CASSANDRA-2034:

currentHintsQueueSize [now totalHints] increment needs to be done OUTSIDE the runnable or
it will never get above the number of task executors

Interesting. I must have forgotten it after one of the patches. I remember fixing it before.

Yes. We should probably either wait for the messages to time out (which is mildly annoying
to the user) or just write hints for everything (which may be confusing: "why are there hints
being sent after I restart, when no node was ever down?) I don't see a perfect solution.

I think I prefer make the user wait for RPCTimeout since it is not that much and perhaps puts
a bit more clarity than just saving the hints just in case.

> Currently, HH is purely an optimization -- if a machine goes down, enabling HH means
RR/AES will have less work to do, but you can't disable RR entirely in most situations since
HH doesn't kick in until the FailureDetector does.
> Let's add a scheduled task to the mutate path, such that we return to the client normally
after ConsistencyLevel is achieved, but after RpcTimeout we check the responseHandler write
acks and write local hints for any missing targets.
> This would making disabling RR when HH is enabled a much more reasonable option, which
has a huge impact on read throughput.
