Subject Re: Unexpected value after insert
Date Tue, 05 Nov 2013 22:43:28 GMT
Hi Jacob ! How are you ?

You understood perfectly the problem. I need to fix an integer field by
reading it, calculating the difference and writing back the correct value
(in other words, increment it with the diff, positive or negative to
achieve the correct value).

As I said it works sometimes and fails in other attempts. i.e. If i run now
it fails... running again then works. I'm "fixing" few records (~30
records) and it fails only in one or two (but not always the same) and
works perfectly to the others. And... if I run again all records got the
correct value. And.... if I run again, some fails.

In the future this script must work with millions of records but I confess
I'm a little insecure right now because it's a very simple operation and it
seems like a Cassandra's bug. Could it be ?

If you need somre more information let me know.

Thank you for the help !
