Subject Re: Point in Time Recovery
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 14:46:18 GMT
Hi Rob,

I know it has been a while but we managed to perform a point-in-time recovery.
I am not really sure what the problem was but I guess it has to do with not reading exactly
(use GMT and not local time zone, copying archivelogs to the wrong place, etc.).

So everything should work as described but I think there should be a little more automation
in it.

Thanks all,

The archived commitlogs are copied to the restore directory and afterwards cassandra is replaying
those commitlogs but still we only see the data from the snapshot, not the commitlogs.

If you turn up debug log4j settings, you should be able to see whether the replay is correctly
applying mutations to memtables.

Do you see a flush of memtables to sstables at the end of commitlog replay? If not, memtables
are not being created by commitlog replay.
