Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3868) Remove or nullify replicate_on_write option
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2012 08:19:48 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-3868:

To be clear, the rational is not shear pratical applicability. The problem is mainly summarized
by CASSANDRA-2389. To rephrase it, during boostrap/move you will silently  (i.e even though
there hasn't been any failure) lose at the end of the boostrap/move all increments that went
to a 'leader' that loses the range the increments is part of. I don't see a quick fix for
that bug and a non-quick fix is likely to add more counter specific code where imo there is
already *way* too much counter specific code.

> My understanding from Sylvain is that setting this option to false is rather dangerous/stupid,
and you should basically never do it.  So 1.1 is a good time to get rid of it, or make it
a no-op.
