Subject repair never finishing 1.0.7
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2012 09:57:02 GMT
Hello everyone,

 I have a 2 DC (DC1:3 and DC2:6) Cassandra1.0.7 setup. I have about
300GB/node in the DC2.

 The DCs are communicating over a gateway where I do NAT for ports 7000,
9160 and 7199.

 I did a "nodetool repair" on a node in DC2 without any external load on
the system.

 It took 5 hrs to finish the Merkle tree calculations (which is fine for
me) but then in the streaming phase nothing happens (0% seen in "nodetool
netstats") and stays like that forever. Note: it has to stream to/from
nodes in DC1!

 I tried another time and still the same.

 Looking around I found this thread
 which seems to describe the same problem.

The thread gives 2 suggestions:
- a full cluster restart allows the first attempted repair to complete
(haven't tested yet; this is not practical even if it works)
- issue can be the

1) How can I make sure that the JIRA issue above is my real problem? (I see
no errors or warns in the logs; no other activity)
2) What should I do to make the repairs work? (If the JIRA issue is the
problem, then I see there is a fix for it in Version 1.0.11 which is not
released yet)
