Subject commitlog replay missing data
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2011 03:28:54 GMT
Hey all,


Recently upgraded to 0.8.1 and noticed what seems to be missing data after a
commitlog replay on a single-node cluster. I start the node, insert a bunch
of stuff (~600MB), stop it, and restart it. There are log messages
pertaining to the commitlog replay and no errors, but some of the data is
missing. If I flush before stopping the node, everything is fine, and
running cfstats in the two cases shows different amounts of data in the
SSTables. Moreover, the amount of data that is missing is nondeterministic.
Has anyone run into this? Thanks.


Here is the output of a side-by-side diff between cfstats outputs for a
single CF before restarting (left) and after (right). Somehow a 37MB
memtable became a 2.9MB SSTable (note the difference in write count as

Note that I patched in
my version, but there are no deletions involved so I don't think it's
relevant unless I messed something up while patching.
