Subject Re: Problem with counter columns
Date Sun, 22 Sep 2013 16:31:59 GMT
I have resolved the issue by recreating tables and recalculating them ( i
use counter columns for summary , so live data allows me to recalculate it

As for upgrading i walked over issues list and found that issues either
where resolved in 0.8.3 , 0.8.4 or opened till now ( my version is 0.8.10 )

Especially the issues :

And previous one that was moved into 4775 :

So my goal is to identify the problem first , prior to upgrading and
opening duplicate case , etc.
I am almost sure that what caused the error was Out of memory problems
which where caused by big super column tables.after that i had to restart a
servers one after another.
Counters got out of sync and looks like when update went to correct server
everything was working , otherwise update was discarded ( servers was not
able to resync on counter columns ).
Looks like also nodetool repair does nothing with counter columns , but
only regular columns.

Unfortunately i did not found any hint about what was wrong in counter
columns and did not saw anything in log files , which makes me only hope
that next time the issue will not be reproduced....
For now i will have to stay with current version till i will see that
described issues are resolved in cassandra.

Best regards
