Jeremiah Jordan updated CASSANDRA-4658:
    Issue Type: New Feature  (was: Bug)

> Explore improved vnode-aware replication strategy
> -------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CASSANDRA-4658
>                 URL:
>             Project: Cassandra
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0 beta 1
>            Reporter: Nick Bailey
> It doesn't look like the current vnode placement strategy will work with people using
NTS and multiple racks.
> For reasons also described on CASSANDRA-3810, using racks and NTS requires tokens to
alternate racks around the ring in order to get an even distribution of data. The current
solution for upgrading/placing vnodes won't take this into account and will likely generate
some hotspots around the ring. 
> Not sure what the best solution is. The two immediately obvious approaches appear to
be quite complicated at first.
> * Fixing NTS to remove the requirement for rack ordering
> ** No idea how this would be accomplished
> ** Presents challenges for people upgrading. Would need to deprecate NTS for a new strategy
that replaces it, then have a clear upgrade path to that strategy which would need to be in
a pre 1.2 release.
> * Changing vnode placement strategy
> ** Ordering vnodes would require quite a bit of additional logic. Adding a new node or
rack would also need to maintain ordering which could cause enough data movement to remove
any benefits vnodes have already.
> ** We could potentially adjust vnode token placement to offset any imbalances caused
by NTS but this would require a fairly intelligent mechanism for determining vnode placement.
