Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-3483) Support bringing up a new datacenter to existing cluster without repair
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2011 18:29:41 GMT


Peter Schuller updated CASSANDRA-3483:

    Attachment: CASSANDRA-3483-0.8-prelim.txt

Here is a patch rebased against 0.8 for cursory review. I do not expect this to go into 0.8,
and in fact I have not tested this patch other than build against vanilla 0.8 (the original
patch is tested, but against our internal 0.8).

If there are no concerns with the overall implementation, I'll submit a rebased version for

There are two components of the change:

* Breaking out the streaming part of BootStrapper into a separate RangeStreamer. Change BootStrapper
to use that.

* Implement the rebuild command on top of RangeStreamer.

There are two ways to invoke rebuild:

nodetool rebuild
nodetool rebuild nameofdc

The first form streams from nearest endpoints, while the latter streams from nearest endpoints
in the specified data center.

> Was talking to Brandon in irc, and we ran into a case where we want to bring up a new
DC to an existing cluster. He suggested from jbellis the way to do it currently was set strategy
options of dc2:0, then add the nodes. After the nodes are up, change the RF of dc2, and run
> I'd like to avoid a repair as it runs AES and is a bit more intense than how bootstrap
works currently by just streaming ranges from the SSTables. Would it be possible to improve
this functionality (adding a new DC to existing cluster) than the proposed method? We'd be
happy to do a patch if we got some input on the best way to go about it.
