Subject read one -- internal behavior
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2014 00:34:23 GMT
I'm wondering about the following scenario.

Consider a cluster of nodes with replication say 3.
When performing a read at "read one" consistency and lets say my client
isn't smart enough to route the request to the Cassandra node housing the
data at first.  the contacted node acts as a coordinator and forwards the
request to:
A) a node that houses the data and waits for a reply, possibly timesout and
re-issues to another in a failure or slow host scenario.
B) all (3) the nodes that house the data and returns after any one of them

I'm hoping for B... anyone know for sure?
