Subject Best strategy to increase cluster size and keep nodes balanced
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2012 12:57:03 GMT
What's the best strategy to increase the cluster size from 3 nodes to 7 nodes, while keeping
the nodes balanced? 
The datastax documentation at
seems to suggest that it's best practice to add one node at a time. Is it the only approach?

Can we add 4 new nodes, reset the tokens, and expect the cluster to rebalance correctly?
