Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-14057) The size of a byte is not 2
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2017 14:46:00 GMT
Sylvain Lebresne created CASSANDRA-14057:

             Summary: The size of a byte is not 2
                 Key: CASSANDRA-14057
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Streaming and Messaging
            Reporter: Sylvain Lebresne
            Assignee: Sylvain Lebresne
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 3.0.16, 3.11.2

{{DataLimits}} serializer uses {{TypeSizes.sizeof((byte)limits.kind().ordinal())}} in it's
{{serializedSize}} method, but {{TypeSizes}} does not (on 3.0/3.11) have a {{sizeof(byte)}}
override, so {{sizeof(short)}} is picked and it returns 2, which is wrong.

This is actually fixed on trunk, [~jasobrown] committed the fix as part of CASSANDRA-8457,
but it wasn't committed in 3.0/3.11 and that still feel dodgy to leave as is.

To be clear, I don't think it's a problem as of now: it does break the size computed for read
commands, and thus the payload size of such message, but said payload size is not use (for
read requests that is).

Still, not reason to leave something wrong like this and risk a future bug when the fix is
