Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9325) cassandra-stress requires keystore but provides no way to configure it

----------------------------------------

             Summary: cassandra-stress requires keystore but provides no way to configure
it
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9325
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9325
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: J.B. Langston


Even though it shouldn't be required unless client certificate authentication is enabled,
the stress tool is looking for a keystore in the default location of conf/.keystore with the
default password of cassandra. There is no command line option to override these defaults
so you have to provide a keystore that satisfies the default. It looks for conf/.keystore
in the working directory, so you need to create this in the directory you are running cassandra-stress
from.It doesn't really matter what's in the keystore; it just needs to exist in the expected
location and have a password of cassandra.

Since the keystore might be required if client certificate authentication is enabled, we need
to add -transport parameters for keystore and keystore-password.  These should be optional
unless client certificate authentication is enabled on the server.

In case it wasn't apparent, this is for Cassandra 2.1 and later's stress tool.  I actually
had even more problems getting Cassandra 2.0's stress tool working with SSL and gave up on
it.  We probably don't need to fix 2.0; we can just document that it doesn't support SSL and
recommend using 2.1 instead.
