Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10745) Deprecate PropertyFileSnitch
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2015 00:06:46 GMT


Paulo Motta commented on CASSANDRA-10745:

Thanks for the input [~sdurity]. We could probably make the {{PropertyFileSnitch}} use the
{{GossipingPropertyFileSnitch}} internally, fetching only the local node's information from
{{}} file while ignoring other node's info from this file (which
will be propagated by gossip as in GPFS).

Alternatively we could still deprecate {{PropertyFileSnitch}} while making {{GossipingPropertyFileSnitch}}
support the {{}} file to allow having a single global topology

>                 Key: CASSANDRA-10745
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Coordination, Distributed Metadata
>            Reporter: Paulo Motta
>            Priority: Minor
> Opening this ticket to discuss deprecating PropertyFileSnitch, since it's error-prone
and more snitch code to maintain (See CASSANDRA-10243). Migration from existing cluster with
PropertyFileSnitch to GossipingPropertyFileSnitch is straightforward.
> Is there any useful use case that can be achieved only with PropertyFileSnitch?
> If not objections, we would add deprecation warnings in 2.2.x, 3.0.x, 3.2 and deprecate
in 3.4 or 3.6.
