If your replication factor is set to one, your cluster is obviously in a bad state following
any node failure.  At best, I think it would make sense that about a third of your operations
fail, but I'm not sure why all of them would.  I don't know if Hector just refuses to work
with a compromised cluster, etc.

I guess I'm wondering why your replication factor is set to 1…

Subject: consistency level question

Hi!
I have a 3 node cassandra cluster.
I use Hector API.

I give hecotr one of the node's IP address
I call setAutoDiscoverHosts(true) and setRunAutoDiscoveryAtStartup(true).

The describe on one node returns:

Replication Strategy: org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleStrategy
  Durable Writes: true
    Options: [replication_factor:1]

The odd thing is that when I take one of the nodes down, expecting all to continue running
smoothly, I get exceptions of the format seen bellow, and no read or write succeeds. When
I bring the node back up, exceptions stop and read and write resumes.

Any idea or explanation why this is the case?
Thanks!
