Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2882) describe_ring should include datacenter/topology information
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 23:48:32 GMT


Patricio Echague commented on CASSANDRA-2882:

One more comment.

It seems to return an empty collection of EndpointDetails for nodes that are not the node
I'm contacting.

In other words, the node I contact for 'describe_ring' returns a populated EndpointDetails
entity and an empty collection for the rest of the nodes in the ring.

I'm using CCM for creating the ring.

> describe_ring is great for getting a list of nodes in the cluster, but it doesn't provide
any information about the network topology which prevents it's use in a multi-dc setup. It
would be nice if we added another list to the TokenRange object containing the DC information.

> Optimally I could have ask any Cassandra node for this information and on the client-side
prefer local nodes but be able to fail to remote nodes without requiring another lookup.
