Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-556) nodeprobe snapshot to support specific column families
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2011 20:03:51 GMT


Victor Z. Peng commented on CASSANDRA-556:

It seems the implementation is not very hard, we simply just add more helper functions that
could handle the request to snapshot a subset of columns, since org.apache.cassandra.db.Table#snapshot
is snapshotting columns one by one already.

One thing's worth discussing is how we support specifying both multi-tables and multi-columns
simultaneously via NodeTool in CLI.

What i propose is we add a '-c' option, which will accept an argument as column names. Since
an option can accept at most on argument, the argument can be formatted as comma separated
string: "-c col1,col2,col3". When -c is absent, we default it to all columns. Does this sound

> It would be good to support dumping specific column families via nodeprobe for backup
> In my particular case the majority of cassandra data doesn't need to be backed up except
for a couple of column families containing user settings / profiles etc.
