Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8791) 'nodetool status' reports nodes in undocumented '?' state
Date Mon, 30 Mar 2015 13:48:53 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-8791:

Honestly, parsing nodetool output is a bad idea in general.  We make no guarantees we won't
make cosmetic changes to that, even in a minor.  Instead you need to use JMX programmatically
yourself because that won't change.

> 'nodetool status' self documents the node status with the statement 'Status=Up/Down'
which corresponds to the 'U' and 'D' statuses in the first column of the node listing.
> There is also a very important '?' status that is not documented, which seems to appear
when a node is bootstrapping.
> Automation and deployment tools need to cope with nodes in this transition state, and
the first step is to inform them about it in the documentation.
