Subject Re: Taking down a node in a 3-node cluster, RF=2
Date Sun, 28 Nov 2010 14:42:25 GMT
to me it makes sense that if hinted handoff is off then cassandra cannot
satisfy 2 out of every 3rd writes writes when one of the nodes is down since
this node is the designated node of 2/3 writes.
But I don't remember reading this somewhere. Does hinted handoff affect
David's situation?
(David, did you disable HH in your storage-config?
