             Summary: Sampling bug in metrics-core-2.0.3.jar used by Cassandra
                 Key: CASSANDRA-5947
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5947
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: J.B. Langston


There is a sampling bug in the version of the metrics library we're using in Cassandra. See
https://github.com/codahale/metrics/issues/421. ExponentiallyDecayingSample is used by the
Timer's histogram that is used in stress tool, and according to [~brandon.williams] it is
also in a few other places like the dynamic snitch. The statistical theory involved in this
bug goes over my head so i'm not sure if this would bug would meaningfully affect its usage
by Cassandra.  One of the comments on the bug mentions that it affects slow sampling rates
(10 samples/min was the example given).  We're currently distributing metrics-core-2.0.3.jar
and according to the release nodes, this bug is fixed in 2.1.3: http://metrics.codahale.com/about/release-notes/#v2-1-3-aug-06-2012
