Subject [jira] [Updated] (CASSANDRA-10809) Create a -D option to prevent gossip startup
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2016 16:23:33 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne updated CASSANDRA-10809:
    Attachment: 10809.txt

I believe restoring the previous behavior is as simple as aborting {{initServer}} before {{prepareToJoin}},
which the attached patch does. The patch doesn't add a way to start gossip after the fact,
but I assume that if you're debugging a schema problem or something like that, it's ok to
restart (without the flag) once you've fixed your problem.

> In CASSANDRA-6961 we changed how join_ring=false works, to great benefit.  However, sometimes
you need to a node to come up, but not interact with other nodes whatsoever - for example
if you have a schema problem, it will still pull the schema from another node because they
still gossip even though we're in a dead state.
> We can add a way to restore the previous behavior by simply adding something like -Dcassandra.start_gossip=false.
> In the meantime we can workaround by setting listen_address to localhost, but that's
kind of a pain.
