Subject commit log question
Date Mon, 20 Sep 2010 11:22:01 GMT
   I have one question about the 'commit log' in Cassandra, so imagine
we issue a write with QUORUM, if the write was successful then we are
sure that N/2 +1 replicas have the new data. If one of these replicas
fail, no state is lost because the state is also available from
another machine in the cluster. Do we really need in this case a
durable commit log at all in this case, it should be a very rare case
to need it?
Thank you very much!
Best regards, Daniel.
