Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8611) give streaming_socket_timeout_in_ms a non-zero default
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:28:46 GMT


Eric Lubow commented on CASSANDRA-8611:

I've seen streams hang for days on EC2 as well. This can be especially problematic when you
are trying to add capacity. Typically if nothing has happened in an hour, then it's probably
the result of a hung stream and waiting another hour doesn't serve to benefit much.  The one
thing to keep in mind for a timeout of two hours is that on smaller datasets, the timeout
for the stream is going to be longer than the entire bootstrap of the machine would take.
I think it would be safe to bring thing down to an hour which is also still very conservative.

> Sometimes as mentioned in CASSANDRA-8472 streams will hang.  We have streaming_socket_timeout_in_ms
which can retry after a timeout.  It would be good to make a default non-zero value.  We don't
want to paper over problems, but streams sometimes hang and you don't want long running streaming
operations to just fail - as in repairs or bootstraps.
> streaming_socket_timeout_in_ms should be based on the tcp idle timeout so it shouldn't
be a problem to set it to on the order of minutes.  Also the socket should only be open during
the actual streaming and not during operations such as merkle tree generation.  We can set
it to a conservative value and people can set it more aggressively as needed.  Disabling as
a default, in my opinion, is too conservative.
