Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3114) After Choosing EC2Snitch you can't migrate off w/o a full cluster restart
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 21:16:10 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-3114:

I'm not sure there's a good solution here.  We could make PFEPS inject the local nodes dc/rack
info into gossip similar to what I suggested in CASSANDRA-1974, but you'd still have to name
things with the ec2snitch conventions for things to not break, and it would be very PFEPS-specific;
other snitches are out of the question.

Ultimately I'm inclined to say you need to choose your snitch like you choose your partitioner:
very carefully.
