Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4350) cql cassandra version reporting is incorrect
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2012 23:31:36 GMT


paul cannon commented on CASSANDRA-4350:

How are you starting cqlsh? Do you have anything in your ~/.cqlshrc file?

And do you get the right version number if you issue the following query in cqlsh:

select version from system.Versions where component = 'build';

or for cql3:
select version from system."Versions" where component = 'build';

> It looks like either the docs are wrong or the functionality is wrong.  The docs for
show version say:
> {quote}
> Shows the version and build of the connected Cassandra instance, well as the versions
of the CQL spec and the Thrift protocol that the connected Cassandra instance understands.
> {quote}
> On a cassandra node in the ring, I do nodetool -h localhost version and it outputs the
correct version (1.0.8).  From a remote node with 1.0.9 installed, I run nodetool -h <same_node_in_ring>
version.  It outputs the correct version.  However when I start cqlsh, it shows the remote
node's version (1.0.9).  Also when I use the 'show version;' command in cqlsh, it also prints
out 1.0.9.
> So either the docs are incorrect and it just outputs the version of the local build or
there's a bug in show version and the startup output and it should really show the version
of the connected node.
