Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3352) do not bind to a specific address for listening
Date Wed, 12 Oct 2011 18:45:11 GMT


Yang Yang commented on CASSANDRA-3352:


but could you please explain why this line is in the cassandra.yaml comment?

# Setting this to is always wrong.

>            Reporter: Yang Yang
>            Priority: Minor
> now the thrift api binds to a specific address when it opens up the tcp socket.
> this creates a little inconvenience when you access the box in cassandra-cli:
> you have to find the exact host name. but if you are using cassandra-cli on localhost,
> you would normally like to just use "localhost"; similarly there is  a problem if
> you use EC2, you have to find the external address, instead of using the local ip, which
is available to you.
> I understand that the bind address would be useful in cases of testing (you can create
> clusters on the same box), but probably we could preserve that behavior through 
> a config var for testing mode only
