Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (CASSANDRA-6696) Drive replacement in JBOD can cause data to reappear.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

bq. doing per-vnode sstables could enable some nice benefits, like turning off the exact vnodes
that are affected by a disk failure or a mini auto-repair on corrupt sstables perhaps?

CASSANDRA-4784 lists some other benefits, the strongest of which I think are

# on disk failure, we can invalidate the affected vnodes and repair them, rather than continuing
to serve incomplete data or halting the entire node [similar to what you are saying here]
# we can deduplicate ranges for bulk load into another cluster (CASSANDRA-4756)

> In JBOD, when someone gets a bad drive, the bad drive is replaced with a new empty one
and repair is run. 
> This can cause deleted data to come back in some cases. Also this is true for corrupt
stables in which we delete the corrupt stable and run repair. 
> Here is an example:
> Say we have 3 nodes A,B and C and RF=3 and GC grace=10days. 
> row=sankalp col=sankalp is written 20 days back and successfully went to all three nodes.

> Then a delete/tombstone was written successfully for the same row column 15 days back.

> Since this tombstone is more than gc grace, it got compacted in Nodes A and B since it
got compacted with the actual data. So there is no trace of this row column in node A and
B.
> Now in node C, say the original data is in drive1 and tombstone is in drive2. Compaction
has not yet reclaimed the data and tombstone.  
> Drive2 becomes corrupt and was replaced with new empty drive. 
> Due to the replacement, the tombstone in now gone and row=sankalp col=sankalp has come
back to life. 
> Now after replacing the drive we run repair. This data will be propagated to all nodes.

> Note: This is still a problem even if we run repair every gc grace.
