Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8336) Quarantine nodes after receiving the gossip shutdown message
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2015 22:53:35 GMT

Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-8336:
---------------------------------------------

v2 has a few problems:

* If a node joins while another is shutdown, it won't see the down node's tokens because it's
a dead state.  This is somewhat tricky to fix since now we need a third class of states aside
from live/dead.

* when we decom and the user kills the node, it goes into shutdown state instead of LEFT

* we should probably do both active and passive announcement, then sleep before killing the
gossiper

> In CASSANDRA-3936 we added a gossip shutdown announcement.  The problem here is that
this isn't sufficient; you can still get TOEs and have to wait on the FD to figure things
out.  This happens due to gossip propagation time and variance; if node X shuts down and sends
the message to Y, but Z has a greater gossip version than Y for X and has not yet received
the message, it can initiate gossip with Y and thus mark X alive again.  I propose quarantining
to solve this, however I feel it should be a -D parameter you have to specify, so as not to
destroy current dev and test practices, since this will mean a node that shuts down will not
be able to restart until the quarantine expires.
