Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8051) Add SERIAL and LOCAL_SERIAL consistency levels to cqlsh
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2015 17:00:06 GMT


Tyler Hobbs commented on CASSANDRA-8051:

The patch handles setting serial consistency levels for reads, but not for writes.  This section
of the python driver docs explains how {{consistency_level}} and {{serial_consistency_level}}
work in conjunction:
 To support setting the {{serial_consistency_level}} for writes, we probably need a new cqlsh

> cqlsh does not support setting the serial consistency level. The default CL.SERIAL does
not let users safely execute LWT alongside an app that runs at LOCAL_SERIAL, and can prevent
any LWT from running when a DC is down (e.g. with 2 DCs, RF=3 in each.)
> Implementing this well is a bit tricky. A user setting the serial CL will probably not
want all of their statements to have a serial CL attached, but only the conditional updates.
At the same time it would be useful to support serial reads. "WITH CONSISTENCY LEVEL" used
to provide this flexibility.
> I believe that it is currently impossible to run a SELECT at SERIAL or LOCAL_SERIAL;
the only workaround seems to be to run a conditional update with a predicate that always resolves
to False, and to rely on the CAS response to read the data.
