Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9079) "respectTombstoneThresholds" should be configurable
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 22:06:53 GMT


Vinay Chella commented on CASSANDRA-9079:

This discussion leads to another interesting point, maybe setting these properties at column
family level would give much more granular control, since cluster could have different column
families with different behavior for TTL and tombstone data in terms of the payload and gc_grace_seconds.
Disabling “tombstoneThresholds” at cluster level might lead to CASSANDRA-6117 if there
is any column family in the cluster, which is having moderate/high payload and large number
of tombstones.

> Currently there is no way to control/ configure the functionality of "drop queries exceeding
a configurable number of tombstones". Making this functionality configurable through yaml
helps use case like:
> We have several production clusters with large number of tombstones due to aggressive
TTLs with very small payloads, and low gc_grace_seconds. Most of the read queries on these
column families are ending up in drop operations or excessive warn messages due to "tombstone_failure_threshold"
and "tombstone_warn_threshold". One cannot deterministically disable these tombstone thresholds
by setting high values. Hence, making "SliceQueryFilter.respectTombstoneThresholds()" configurable
through yaml would be the better approach. 
> Column families with small payloads (couple hundred bytes) having large number of tombstones
would not lead to "Avoid death-by-tombstone by default (CASSANDRA-6117)", which is the reason
for observed drop operations. We see drop operations before compactions catch up, and clean
those tombstones with both STCS and LCS. Configurable "respectTombstoneThresholds()" will
help in reducing tombstone warnings noise.
