Subject How does Cassandra handle failure during synchronous writes
Date Wed, 23 Feb 2011 04:22:16 GMT

I wanted to get details on how does cassandra do synchronous writes to W
replicas (out of N)? Does it do a 2PC? If not, how does it deal with
failures of of nodes before it gets to write to W replicas? If the
orchestrating node cannot write to W nodes successfully, I guess it will
fail the write operation but what happens to the completed writes on X (W >
X) nodes?
