Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10786) Include hash of result set metadata in prepared statement id
Date Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:44:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-10786?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15318602#comment-15318602

Alex Petrov commented on CASSANDRA-10786:
-----------------------------------------

bq. Unfortunately, server-side we invalidate all related prepared statements whenever a schema
change occurs, so there will still be some amount of full repreparation until the v5 protocol
is the minimum supported protocol version and we can change this server-side behavior.

I've made a prototype that helps to avoid re-prepares on schema altering by trying re-preparing
statements server side instead of invalidating them, which works quite well. Having that said,
we can certainly just invalidate and wait until the first client hits. But we'd still benefit
from that on all other clients.

> This is a follow-up to CASSANDRA-7910, which was about invalidating a prepared statement
when the table is altered, to force clients to update their local copy of the metadata.
> There's still an issue if multiple clients are connected to the same host. The first
client to execute the query after the cache was invalidated will receive an UNPREPARED response,
re-prepare, and update its local metadata. But other clients might miss it entirely (the MD5
hasn't changed), and they will keep using their old metadata. For example:
> # {{SELECT * ...}} statement is prepared in Cassandra with md5 abc123, clientA and clientB
both have a cache of the metadata (columns b and c) locally
> # column a gets added to the table, C* invalidates its cache entry
> # clientA sends an EXECUTE request for md5 abc123, gets UNPREPARED response, re-prepares
on the fly and updates its local metadata to (a, b, c)
> # prepared statement is now in C*’s cache again, with the same md5 abc123
> # clientB sends an EXECUTE request for id abc123. Because the cache has been populated
again, the query succeeds. But clientB still has not updated its metadata, it’s still (b,c)
> One solution that was suggested is to include a hash of the result set metadata in the
md5. This way the md5 would change at step 3, and any client using the old md5 would get an
UNPREPARED, regardless of whether another client already reprepared.
