Subject Re: Cassandra operation success ratio survey results
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 17:25:08 GMT
The standard thrift php client detects the problem by normal timeout
which triggers a TException (Thrift Exception) which indicates that
request timeouted, or the (in)famous "timed out reading 4 bytes from
<host>". These errors are catched on my php wrapper
[] and it retries the
operation inside a while loop into another server. The timeout setting
is provided by user, we are currently using one second, but we'll
propably make it shorter in the future and increment the timeout for
the request in case the request timeouted on first server and also by
request type (get_slice takes longer than get_column)
