Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9318) Bound the number of in-flight requests at the coordinator
Date Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:27:05 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-9318:

# You can't just shed indiscriminately without breaking the contract that once you've accepted
a write (and not handed back UnavailableException) then you must deliver it or hint it.  You
can't just drop it on the floor even to save yourself from falling over.  (If you fall over
then at least it's clear to the user that you weren't able to fulfill your contract.  No,
logging it isn't good enough.)
# Again, shedding is strictly worse from a user's point of view than not accepting a write
we can't handle.

> It's possible to somewhat bound the amount of load accepted into the cluster by bounding
the number of in-flight requests and request bytes.
> An implementation might do something like track the number of outstanding bytes and requests
and if it reaches a high watermark disable read on client connections until it goes back below
some low watermark.
> Need to make sure that disabling read on the client connection won't introduce other
