Subject Re: Really have to repair ?
Date Fri, 05 Apr 2013 15:22:17 GMT
Hi Cyril,

According to the documentation (,
I understand that is is not necessary to repair every node before
gc_grace_seconds if you are sure that you don't miss to run a repair each
time a node is down longer than gc_grace_seconds.

"*IF* your operations team is sufficiently on the ball, you can get by
without repair as long as you do not have hardware failure -- in that case,
HintedHandoff is adequate to repair successful updates that some replicas
have missed"

Am I wrong ? Thoughts ?
