Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10518) initialDirectories passed into ColumnFamilyStore contructor
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2015 06:56:05 GMT


Marcus Eriksson commented on CASSANDRA-10518:

Not sure I understand how you intend to use this

* afaict initialDirectories is only used to figure out the max generation in createColumnFamilyStore(...)
* initialDirectories is static and we only add more directories to it - if you have several
tables with custom data directories, wont they all just be appended?

> One of the goals of CASSANDRA-8671 was to let compaction strategies write to directories
not used by normal tables, and the field {{ColumnFamilyStore.initialDirectories}} was added
to make sstables in those directories discoverable on cfs instantiation.
> Unfortunately, in my patch, I passed the full list of directories {{initialDirectories}}
into the ColumnFamilyStore constructor, effectively making these directories usable by any
table. The attached patch fixes this, and elaborates on the correct usage of the usage of
{{ColumnFamilyStore.addInitialDirectories}} in it's comment
