> In May through June of 2016 a static analysis was performed on version 3.0.5 of the Cassandra

manual analysis utilizing SciTools Understand v4. The results of that analysis includes the
issue below.

66.
> LimitedLocalNodeFirstLocalBalancingPolicy.java, lines 64-72:
> {code:java}
> 64 try
> 65 {
> 66     InetAddress[] addresses = InetAddress.getAllByName(replica);
> 67     Collections.addAll(replicaAddresses, addresses);
> 68 }
> 69 catch (UnknownHostException e)
> 70 {
> 71     logger.warn("Invalid replica host name: {}, skipping it", replica);
> 72 }
> {code}
