Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3695) Hibernating nodes that die never go away
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2012 19:53:39 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-3695:

Thinking through this a bit more, they will go away, but not until AVeryLongTime passes and
they are expired (which makes displaying them in CASSANDRA-3631 problematic.)  So what we
really want to want to do is catch the special case of a bootstrapping node dying while it's
in the hibernate state, since presumably if the node is truly hibernating for a token replacement
and dies, it will just be attempted again with the same token.

This is very tricky to solve though, because we can't actually use the heartbeat or FD, otherwise
the node gets marked as up and ruins the replacement scenario.  Perhaps the best thing to
do is wontfix CASSANDRA-3631 and call it a day.

other nodes, but it's tricky since it's a dead state.
