Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-13851) Allow existing nodes to use all peers in shadow round
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2017 12:37:00 GMT
Kurt Greaves created CASSANDRA-13851:

             Summary: Allow existing nodes to use all peers in shadow round
                 Key: CASSANDRA-13851
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Kurt Greaves

In CASSANDRA-10134 we made collision checks necessary on every startup. A side-effect was
introduced that then requires a nodes seeds to be contacted on every startup. Prior to this
change an existing node could start up regardless whether it could contact a seed node or
not (because checkForEndpointCollision() was only called for bootstrapping nodes). 

Now if a nodes seeds are removed/deleted/fail it will no longer be able to start up until
live seeds are configured (or itself is made a seed), even though it already knows about the
rest of the ring. This is inconvenient for operators and has the potential to cause some nasty
surprises and increase downtime.

One solution would be to use all a nodes existing peers as seeds in the shadow round. Not
a Gossip guru though so not sure of implications.
