Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-5411) Unexpired hints can potentially create previously deleted rows
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2013 23:02:07 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-5411.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

I can't think of a better solution than "deliver or truncate your hints if you need to modify
gc_grace and don't want resurrection" either.

>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.10
>         Environment: Ubuntu 10.04
>            Reporter: Arya Goudarzi
>            Priority: Minor
> Per discussion here:
> Hints are TTLed to lowest gc_grace_seconds. If we have hints that are not replayed, and
the administrator updates schema to have lower gc_grace seconds on some CF, chances are compactions
will delete tombstones and history of delete gets lost. If the deleted row is in some hints
CF, since the TTL is not updated, chances are it gets replayed and the deleted row comes back
to life. 
> I think it would be nice as part of schema migration, to also update the TTLs on hints
that already exists on any nodes hints column family.
