Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8336) Quarantine nodes after receiving the gossip shutdown message
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2015 00:08:12 GMT


Richard Low commented on CASSANDRA-8336:

v3 works well and I was able to do a full cluster bounce with zero timeouts.

Here’s a few minor points:

* The shutting down node might as well set the version of the shutdown state to Integer.MAX_VALUE
since receiving nodes will blindly use that.
* Why does it increment the generation number? We call Gossiper.instance.start with a new
generation number set to the current time so it would make sense to use that.
* If hit 'Unable to gossip with any seeds’ on replace, it shuts down the gossiper. This
throws an AssertionError in addLocalApplicationState since the local epState is null.

> 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.
