Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10574) Add the option to skip compaction for hints cf when doing the handoff.
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2015 15:31:11 GMT


Aleksey Yeschenko commented on CASSANDRA-10574:

The only reason we compact them at all is to clear out the tombstones. I'm not sure that this
is a workaround we want to commit, as it doesn't fix the issue fundamentally (and with the
flag you are risking failures due to tombstone overwhelmed exceptions when reading hints).

The true fix is the new hints implementation in 3.0 (which, I know, doesn't help you much
right now, sorry).

I'm afraid you'll have to patch your C* locally if you want to run this patch (again, sorry).

> In our production env, we stop the gossip for about 1 hour on around 1/3 of nodes, and
then we enable the gossip and it took very long time for the other 2/3 nodes to do the hints
> I find that most of the time is spent to do the compaction before each hints handoff,
while in most case, there is only one sstable, and it's really not necessary to do the compaction.
> So I add the option to skip the compaction to allow the nodes to finish hints handoff
very quickly.
