Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-9581) pig-tests spend time waiting on /dev/random for SecureRandom
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:38:01 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-9581?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Ariel Weisberg updated CASSANDRA-9581:
--------------------------------------
    Description: We don't need secure random numbers (for unit tests) so waiting for entropy
doesn't make much sense. Luckily Java makes it easy to point to /dev/urandom for entropy.
It also transparently handles it correctly on Windows.  (was: We don't need secure random
numbers so waiting for entropy doesn't make much sense. Luckily Java makes it easy to point
to /dev/urandom for entropy. It also transparently handles it correctly on Windows.)
