Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4358) Delay Joining the ring until bootstrap and its compaction completes
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2012 15:47:42 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-4358:

bq. admittedly I haven't fully thought out if merging from multiple sources would still be

Now that I've had my coffee: no, it's not.  But at least doing it for one source and throwing
the others into L0 would be a decent optimization.

> LCS adds a lot of small SST's while bootstrapping a node (after streaming), followed
by a large amount of compactions. 
> We might want to do the following to speedup the compaction and reduce the impact to
the incoming traffic:
> 1) Delay the node from joining the ring and wait until the node settles down with compactions.
> 2) Un-throttle the compactions and do it ASAP.
> 3) Once the node settles down we can enable thrift and join the ring.
> at the Least it might be better for us to avoid thrift traffic until the compaction completes.
