Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-3136) Allow CFIF to keep going despite unavailable ranges
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2011 19:20:10 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-3136.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

As explained when this was injected into another ticket, supporting this very niche scenario
is not worth adding complexity to our Hadoop interface.  The "right" way to support fault-tolerant
queries is to increase RF.

> We use Cassandra as a storage for web-pages, we store the HTML, all
> URLs that has the same HTML data and some computed data. We run Hadoop
> MR jobs to compute lexical and thematical data for each page and for
> exporting the data to a binary files for later use. URL gets to a
> Cassandra on user request (a pageview) so if we delete an URL, it gets
> back quickly if the page is active. Because of that and because there
> is lots of data, we have the keyspace set to RF=1. We can drop the
> whole keyspace and it will regenerate quickly and would contain only
> fresh data, so we don't care about lossing a node.

> For example such a job could be run at regular intervals in the day until a hit was found.
