Subject Replication factor - Consistency Questions
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 17:02:45 GMT
Hello all,

There is a lot of material on Replication factor and Consistency level but I
am a little confused by what is happening on my setup. (Cassandra 1.1.2). I
would appreciate any answers.

My Setup: A cluster of 2 nodes evenly balanced. My RF =2, Consistency Level;
Write = ANY and Read = 1

I know that my consistency is Weak but since my RF = 2, I thought data would
be just duplicated in both the nodes but sometimes, querying does not give
me the correct (or gives partial) results. In other times, it gives me the
right results
Is the Read Repair going on after the first query? But as RF = 2, data is
duplicated then why the repair? 
Note: My query is done a while after the Writes so data should have been in
both the nodes. Or is this not the case (flushing not happening etc)?

I am thinking of making the Write as 1 and Read as QUORAM so R + W > RF (1 +
2 > 2) to give strong consistency. Will that affect performance a lot
(generally speaking)?

Thanks in advance
