Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-13639) SSTableLoader always uses hostname to stream files from
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 07:49:00 GMT


Stefan Podkowinski commented on CASSANDRA-13639:

Just had a quick look at the patch and noticed that the intention behind providing a separate
config file option is to initialize streaming and ssl settings and not to actually apply the
config. Where exactly is the problematic getLocalAddress() call being made? Maybe we can find
a cleaner solution for that.

> I stumbled upon an issue where SSTableLoader was ignoring our routing by using the wrong
interface to send the SSTables to the other nodes. Looking at the code, it seems that we are
using FBUtilities.getLocalAddress() to fetch out the hostname, even if the yaml file specifies
a different host. I am not sure why we call this function instead of using the routing by
leaving it blank, perhaps someone could enlighten me.
> This behaviour comes from the fact that we use a default created DatabaseDescriptor which
does not set the values for listenAddress and listenInterface. This causes the aforementioned
function to retrieve the hostname at all times, even if it is not the interface used in the
yaml file.
> I propose we break out the function that handles listenAddress and listenInterface and
call it so that listenAddress or listenInterface is getting populated in the DatabaseDescriptor.
