Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6514) Nodetool Refresh / CFS.loadNewSSTables() can Lose New SSTables
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2013 22:58:07 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6514:

Maybe it would be best to add some kind of "staging" directory so we don't need to worry about
conflicts at all.  Fundamentally it's kind of broken to encourage people to manually edit
the live data directories.

> When nodetool refresh / CFS.loadNewSSTables() renames the newly loaded SSTables, it doesn't
check to make sure the new name doesn't already exist.  It's easy for one of the newly loaded
files themselves to have one of these names, so the rename will wipe out one of the SSTables
you intended to load.
> For example, if you create a new, empty table, move two SSTables with generations 1 and
2 into the data directory, and then call {{nodetool refresh}}, you might see this:
