Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6772) Cassandra inter data center communication broken
Date Thu, 27 Feb 2014 04:25:19 GMT


Ananthkumar K S commented on CASSANDRA-6772:

No. Handshaking process between the nodes in datacenters in failing. It initiates a handshaking
process and client on both sides don't complete the connection post this private link failure.
Retries seems to be happening continuously and we are able to see that in TCP dump too. So
, at the network level, they seem to be fine on both the ends. 

To confirm this, I did a restart of all the nodes in both the data centers and now it's all
proper. But this should have happened at the application level without a restart. A private
link failure could be a common use case. Moreover, the TCP retries are done at the cassandra
defaults of 5 seconds.

If you need a detail at the network level, post private link failure, I could see a lot of
connection in FIN_WAIT1 mode. There were also considerable amount of CLOSED_WAIT modes. This
will again result in connection in TCP drops eventually. Guess, some sort of communication
is expected from the client level to the server to close all this at the network layer in
case of this too. Last one is just my assumption based on my knowledge on TCP transitions.

> I have two data enters DC1 and DC2. Both communicate via a private link. Yesterday, we
had a problem with a private link for 10 mins. From the time the problem was resolved, nodes
in both data centers are not able to communicate with each other. When I do a nodetool status
on a node in DC1, the nodes in DC2 are stated as down. When tried in DC2, nodes in DC1 are
shown as down .
> But in the cassandra logs, we can clearly see that handshaking is failing every 5 seconds
for communication between data centres. At TCP level, there are too many fin_wait1 generated
by cassandra which is still a puzzle . Closed_wait top transitions due to this is very high.
Due to this kind of problem of TCP listen drops, we moved from 2.0.1 to 2.0.3. In 2.0.1, it
was within data center itself. But here it's between data centers. If it has anything to do
with the snitch configuration, I am using GossipingPropertyFileSnitch.
> This clearly started happening post private link failure. Any idea on this?
> Cassandra version used is 2.0.3
