Subject Re: Pluggable throttling of read and write queries
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2017 05:35:17 GMT
Stupid question:
Why do you rate limit a database, especially writes. Wouldn't that cause a
lot of new issues like back pressure on the rest of your system or timeouts
in case of blocking requests?
Also rate limiting has to be based on per coordinator calculations and not
cluster wide. It reminds me on hinted handoff throttling.
