Subject Re: Hinted handoff not working
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2014 05:26:54 GMT
I’ve got "hinted_handoff_enabled: true" in cassandra.yaml. My settings are all default except
for the DC, listen addresses and snitch. I should have mentioned this in my original post.

its data doesn’t grow until I run repair, which then takes a really long time because it
is significantly out of date. Is there some magic setting I cannot find in the documentation
to enable hinted handoff? I’m running 2.0.11. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
