Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6106) QueryState.getTimestamp() & FBUtilities.timestampMicros() reads current timestamp with System.currentTimeMillis() * 1000 instead of System.nanoTime() / 1000

Rick Branson commented on CASSANDRA-6106:
-----------------------------------------

Yeah you're right. The thread will probably occasionally get interrupted by the kernel between
the currentTimeMillis() and the nanoTime() call. It'd probably take a bunch of iterations
to properly "calibrate" the base clock. This is getting pretty far into the extremely-fragile
territory.

> I noticed this blog post: http://aphyr.com/posts/294-call-me-maybe-cassandra mentioned
issues with millisecond rounding in timestamps and was able to reproduce the issue. If I specify
a timestamp in a mutating query, I get microsecond precision, but if I don't, I get timestamps
rounded to the nearest millisecond, at least for my first query on a given connection, which
substantially increases the possibilities of collision.

I think we probably need a fairly comprehensive replacement of all uses of System.currentTimeMillis()
with System.nanoTime().
