Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4120) Gossip identifies hosts by IP
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 15:08:23 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4120:

We should probably pick a different unique identifier, since IP is not really a unique identifier
either.  (E.g., host dies, new one joins the cluster with same IP.)  This motivated the switch
from using IP to using token in the past.

> Since there is no longer a one-to-one mapping of host to token, the IP should be used
to identify a host. This impacts:

> * Hinted Hand-off
