Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10130) Node failure during 2i update after streaming can have incomplete 2i when restarted
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2017 16:11:04 GMT


Sergio Bossa commented on CASSANDRA-10130:

bq. It's still possible that an index is created after the SSTableAddedNotification but before
all sstables are added to the tracker

That made me also think of an ABA-like race, where a new index is registered _and built_ in-between
the two notifications, causing it to miss the new-to-be-added sstables. Weird stuff, and overall
excellent points [~pauloricardomg].

Given most of the races come from the 2-phase event-based solution, I'd say to simplify it
in a way that still at least solves the original issue: that is, keep just the {{SSTableAddedNotification}},
and mark the index building/built around that; this will not protect against failures happening
_while_ adding SSTables, but again, it would at least solve the original problem of the index
itself failing after adding the SSTables and missing to rebuild. Then, we can think about
a more complete solution (i.e. one that doesn't rebuild the whole index because of a single
failed stream) in another ticket.

> Since MV/2i update happens after SSTables are received, node failure during MV/2i update
can leave received SSTables live when restarted while MV/2i are partially up to date.
> We can add some kind of tracking mechanism to automatically rebuild at the startup, or
at least warn user when the node restarts.
