Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-13639) SSTableLoader always uses hostname to stream files from
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2017 08:55:00 GMT


Jan Karlsson commented on CASSANDRA-13639:

If SSL is enabled, {SSTableLoader} always uses the hostname no matter how your routing is
set up. If you have a second interface that you route all {SSTableLoader} traffic from, it
will still pick your first network interface because it corresponds with your hostname. Thereby
overriding any routing you might have set up. This screams bug to me.

The correct behavior would be for {SSTableLoader} to use the normal routing of the server.
I am unclear why we set the from address specifically ourself instead of leaving it blank.
I can see that it might be useful to have it as a command variable as well. However it is
quite strange to set up a 'connect from' address.
        if (encryptionOptions != null && encryptionOptions.internode_encryption !=
            if (outboundBindAny)
                return SSLFactory.getSocket(encryptionOptions, peer, secureStoragePort);
                return SSLFactory.getSocket(encryptionOptions, peer, secureStoragePort, FBUtilities.getLocalAddress(),

I am a little unclear of why the code is the way it is. The method is only called with {outboundBindAny}
set to false. It seems to me that calling it without the {FBUtilities} call would be the correct
way of calling it.

> 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.
