Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9113) Improve error message when bootstrap fails
Date Fri, 03 Apr 2015 14:40:52 GMT
Philip Thompson created CASSANDRA-9113:

             Summary: Improve error message when bootstrap fails
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9113
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Core
            Reporter: Philip Thompson
             Fix For: 3.1

Currently when bootstrap fails, users see a {{RuntimeException: Stream failed}} with a long
stack trace. This typically brings them to IRC, the mailing list, or jira. However, most of
the time, it is not due to a C* server failure, but network or machine issues.

While there are probably improvements that could be made to improve the resiliency of streaming,
it would be nice if, assuming no server errors detected, that instead of the RuntimeException
users are shown a less traumatic error message, that includes or points to documentation on
how to solve a failed bootstrap stream.
