Subject RE: what happens while node is bootstrapping?
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2012 04:46:53 GMT
According to my experience if bootstrap is running on already Live cluster node (and dead from
sometime) then it start serving read during bootstrap process also but if bootstrap is running
on new node (which is joining cluster first time) then read requests will not go to this node
until bootstrap completes

Bootstrapping nodes do not handle reads requests until the bootstrap process is complete.
