Subject What's difference between node tool removenode & decommission in 1.2.x
Date Tue, 13 Aug 2013 17:01:07 GMT
I'm a little bit confused on why the nodetool utility has a decommission and a removenode command.
 I speculate that decommission command just informs the other nodes that I'm going offline
and does not move the data off that node. Whereas removenode resync's the data/tokens to the
other nodes.   Although maybe I'm way off.

In short, I'm trying to remove a node and want to know the a good safe way to make sure its
tokens are moved to other nodes.  I will note that the other nodes should already have the
data, but I always prefer the safest way to insure data is not lost.
