Subject Re: Question on Eventual Consistency
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 19:34:27 GMT
I'm using CL=QUORUM (=Hector default) for both reads and writes. Most of 
the times, the test passes, but sometimes it fails because I get back 
the old value. Since the test is single-threaded, I guess it is a bug. 
I'll try to reduce the test to something smaller that can be used for 

By the way, is it documented somewhere under what circumstances one can 
expect inconsistencies and when not?
