Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-6547) Patch to bring back replace_token
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2014 14:17:50 GMT
Fabien Rousseau created CASSANDRA-6547:

             Summary: Patch to bring back replace_token
                 Key: CASSANDRA-6547
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Fabien Rousseau

This is a follow-up for CASSANDRA-5916 where option "-Dcassandra.replace_token" was deprecated.

The attached patch is a tentative to bring it back, but the token(s) must identify only one
host and be an exact match (ie : all tokens of the host must be specified).

How it works:
 - after the shadow gossip round, it tries to find a host to replace which matches exactly
the specified tokens.
 - then it set -Dcassandra.replace_address
 - then, process is the same as replacing an host

For us, it is a lot easier to use replace_token than replace_address. (We describe a cluster
with a number of nodes and a list of tokens, and are in the cloud...)
