Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-8038) A new config option to ignore column tombstones for RR or not
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 01:44:34 GMT
Takenori Sato created CASSANDRA-8038:

             Summary: A new config option to ignore column tombstones for RR or not
                 Key: CASSANDRA-8038
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Takenori Sato

CASSANDRA-6117 addressed the death of Cassandra by column tombstones, and whose fix was to
raise an error when reading more tombstones than a threshold. I think it is an emergency action,
rather than a fix.

We have had this issue for long. So I wondered, in the first place, if it is really necessary
to collect non-gc-able tombstones, which could cause concurrent mode failures, and OOM eventually?

Actually, I was surprised by the fact that Cassandra takes them into consideration. Rather,
I prefer to raise a threshold, and tell Cassandra to ignore tombstones for digest calculation
of RR because a repair is running regularly. 

I guess there are some people like me, but not all. So what about adding a new configuration
option if Cassandra ignores column tombstones for RR or not?
