Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-6547) Patch to bring back replace_token
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2014 18:56:00 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-6547.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Sorry, I don't think this is worth the complexity to maintain in tree.  Consider creating
a script around nodetool to look up an address from a token list instead.

> Patch to bring back replace_token
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-6547
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Fabien Rousseau
>         Attachments: 6547.txt
> 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...)
