Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8754) Required consistency level
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2015 18:44:35 GMT

Ryan Svihla commented on CASSANDRA-8754:
----------------------------------------

Sure, it still opens up to people using the cassandra user for nefarious actions, and this
is more about creating an invariant for a dataset itself.  Really the default value should
be no restrictions so it's really only about what users who care about this want.

> Idea is to prevent a query based on a consistency level not being met. For example we
can specify that all queries should be at least CL LOCAL_QUORUM.
> Lots of users struggle with getting all their dev teams on board with consistency levels
and all the ramifications. The normal solution for this has traditionally to build a service
in front of Cassandra that the entire dev team accesses. However, this has proven challenging
for some organizations to do correctly, and I think an easier approach would be to require
a given consistency level as a matter of enforced policy in the database. 
> I'm open for where this belongs. The most flexible approach is at a table level, however
I'm concerned this is potentially error prone and labor intensive. It could be a table attribute
similar to compaction strategy.
> The simplest administratively is a cluster level, in say the cassandra.yaml
> The middle ground is at they keyspace level, the only downside I could foresee is keyspace
explosion to fit involved minimum schemes. It could be a keyspace attribute such as replication
strategy.
