Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-1974) PFEPS-like snitch that uses gossip instead of a property file
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 16:05:02 GMT


Wilfried Schobeiri commented on CASSANDRA-1974:

For those of us not on ec2, it would be incredibly convenient to have changes to the topology
propagate across the entire cluster instead of maintaining an additional rsync. +1

> Now that we have an ec2 snitch that propagates its rack/dc info via gossip from CASSANDRA-1654,
it doesn't make a lot of sense to use PFEPS where you have to rsync the property file across
all the machines when you add a node.  Instead, we could have a snitch where you specify its
rack/dc in a property file, and propagate this via gossip like the ec2 snitch.  In order to
not break PFEPS, this should probably be a new snitch.
