Subject Re: Experiences with repairs using vnodes
Date Fri, 24 Oct 2014 23:46:52 GMT
If anyone used incremental repair feature in 2.1 environment with
vnodes, I'd like to hear how it is doing.
Validation is the main time consuming part of repair, and it should be
much better after you switch to incremental.

I did some experiment regarding CASSANDRA-5220 like doing repairing
some ranges together, but it just hammers node hard with little gain.
So if incremental repair is working as expected, I'll happy to won't fix #5220.
