Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-4311) clean up messagingservice protocol limitations
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 02:19:22 GMT
Jonathan Ellis created CASSANDRA-4311:

             Summary: clean up messagingservice protocol limitations
                 Key: CASSANDRA-4311
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Jonathan Ellis
             Fix For: 1.2

Weaknesses of the existing protocol:

- information asymmetry: node A can know what version node B expects, but not vice versa (see
- delayed information: node A will often not know what version node B expects, until after
first contacting node B -- forcing it to throw that first message away and retry for the next
- protocol cannot handle both cross-dc forwarding and broadcast_address != socket address
(see bottom of CASSANDRA-4099)
- version is partly global, partly per-connection, and partly per-message, resulting in some
interesting hacks (CASSANDRA-3166) and difficulty layering more sophisticated OutputStreams
on the socket (CASSANDRA-3127, CASSANDRA-4139)
