Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7122) Replacement nodes have null entries in system.peers
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2014 20:31:16 GMT


Richard Low commented on CASSANDRA-7122:

It looks to be caused by StorageService.onChange ignoring state changes when %{code}Gossiper.instance.isDeadState(epState)%{code}.
When a replacement node comes up, it is in the hibernate state, which is counted as dead.
Since the info like DC and rack never changes, it is never resent so is never persisted to

Is it safe to special case hibernate and persist the peer info? Dead states were ignored by
CASSANDRA-6053, maybe that was overly restrictive?

> If a node is replaced with -Dcassandra.replace_address, the new node has mostly null
entries in system.peers:
> {code}
> > select * from system.peers;
>  peer      | data_center | host_id | rack | release_version | rpc_address | schema_version
| tokens

 null | {'-3074457345618258602'}
> {code}
> To reproduce, simply kill a node and replace it. The entries are correctly populated
if the replacement node is restarted but they are never populated if it isn't.
> I can think of at least two bad consequences of this:
> 1. Drivers like Datastax java-driver use the peers table to find the rpc_address and
location info of a node. If the entires are null it assumes rpc_address=ip and the node is
in the local DC.
> 2. When using GossipingPropertyFileSnitch and node won't persist the DC/rack of another
node so may not be able to locate it during restarts.
> I reproduced in 1.2.15 but from inspection it looks to be present in 1.2.16 and 2.0.7.
