Philip Thompson updated CASSANDRA-8591:
    Fix Version/s: 3.0

> Tunable bootstrapping

> Often bootstrapping fails due to errors like "unable to find sufficient sources for streaming
range". But cassandra is supposed to be fault tolerant, and it's supposed to have tunable
> If it can't find sources for some ranges, it should allow bootstrapping to continue and
should print out a report about what ranges were missing.   Allow the bootstrap to be tunable,
under control of parameters ("allow up to 100 failures", for example).
> For many apps, it's far better to bootstrap what's available then to fail flat.
> Same with rebuilds.
> We were doing maintenance on some disks, and when we started cassandra back up, some
nodes ran out of disk space, due to operator miscalculation. Thereafter, we've been unable
to bootstrap new nodes, due to "unable to find sufficient sources for streaming range."  But
bootstrapping with partial success would be far better than being unable to bootstrap at all,
and cheaper than a repair. Our consistency requirements aren't high but we prefer as much
consistency as cassandra can give us.
