Subject Re: Monitoring replication lag/latency in multi DC setup
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 03:33:20 GMT
As far as I know Cassandra doesn't use internal queueing mechanism specific
to replication. Cassandra sends the write the remote DC and after that it's
upto the tcp/ip stack to deal with buffering. If requests starts to timeout
Cassandra would use HH upto certain time. For longer outage you would have
to run repair.

Also look at tcp/ip tuning parameters that are helpful with your scenario:

Run iperf and test the latency.
