all,

my 4 node cluster seems pretty screwed up after the AWS outage.  we found all our machines with their cpu stuck at 100%.  so i went to restart each cassandra node one by one.  i did node with token id 0 first.  i came back but doesn't look like it doing anything.  once i thought it was up i went and restarted the next.  this one got stuck on the AMI init startup.  i cancelled it, rebooted againg and now it't suck with "[INFO] 07/02/12-15:42:29 Received 0 of 1 responses from: "

suggestions on how to fix this?


thanks,
deno
