Subject Re: Async write
Date Fri, 18 Feb 2011 21:24:41 GMT
Fact as i understand them:-
- A write call to db triggers a number of async writes to all nodes where
the particular write should be recorded (and the nodes are up per Gossip and
so on)
- Once desired CL number of writes acknowledge - the call returns

So your issue is moot. That is what is happening under the covers!
