Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8273) Allow filtering queries can return stale data
Date Mon, 02 May 2016 10:26:13 GMT


Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-8273:

I don't really understand the reasoning of that. If you can live with stale data, why would
you use {{QUORUM}} in the first place? Imo, either we're able to fix this somehow, or we should
consider moving filtering coordinator side always. Haven't yet had time to put too much though
on how to do the former though so far.

> Data filtering is done replica side. That means that a single replica with stale data
may make the whole query return that stale data.
> For instance, consider 3 replicas A, B and C, and the following situation:
> {noformat}
> CREATE TABLE test (k int PRIMARY KEY, v1 text, v2 int);
> CREATE INDEX ON test(v1);
> INSERT INTO test(k, v1, v2) VALUES (0, 'foo', 1);
> {noformat}
> with every replica up to date. Now, suppose that the following queries are done at {{QUORUM}}:
> {noformat}
> UPDATE test SET v2 = 2 WHERE k = 0;
> SELECT * FROM test WHERE v1 = 'foo' AND v2 = 1;
> {noformat}
> then, if A and B acknowledge the insert but C respond to the read before having applied
the insert, then the now stale result will be returned. Let's note that this is a problem
related to filtering, not 2ndary indexes.
> This issue share similarity with CASSANDRA-8272 but contrarily to that former issue,
I'm not sure how to fix it. Obviously, moving the filtering to the coordinator would remove
that problem, but doing so would, on top of not being trivial to implmenent, have serious
performance impact since we can't know in advance how much data will be filtered and we may
have to redo query to replica multiple times.
