Subject nodetool repair cassandra 0.8.4 HELP!!!
Date Sat, 28 Apr 2012 14:47:14 GMT
I have a 6 node cassandra cluster DC1=3, DC2=3 with 60 GB data on each
node. I was bulk loading data over the weekend. But we forgot to turn off
the weekly nodetool repair job. As a result, repair was interfering when we
were bulk loading data. I canceled repair by restarting the nodes. But
unfortunately after the restart it looks like I dont have any data on those
nodes when I use list on cassandra-cli. I ran repair on one of the effected
nodes, but repair seems to be taking forever. Disk space has almost
tripled. I stopped the repair again in fear of running out of disk space.
After restart, the disk space is at 50% where as the good nodes are at 25%.
How should I proceed from here.  When I run list on cassandra-cli I do see
data on the effected node. But how can I be sure I have all the
data. Should I run repair again. Should I cleanup the disk by clearing
snapshots. Or should I just drop column families and bulk load the data
