Subject Re: EC2snitch in AWS
Date Wed, 27 May 2015 17:11:49 GMT
It's pretty straightforward - there is documentation here
<http://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/architecture/architectureSnitchEC2_t.html>.
Simply set endpoint_snitch: Ec2Snitch in cassandra.yaml when creating the
cluster and create keyspaces with the necessary NetworkTopologyStrategy.
The only real gotcha that I've run into is that the "datacenter"
(cassandra) and "regions" (AWS) match up 1:1 except for us-east-1 (it's
just "us-east " in the Ec2Snitch.)

Below are some examples that specify that data for that keyspace will be
present on 3 nodes. See consistency documentation
<http://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/dml/dml_config_consistency_c.html>
for
how to tune your clients to meet certain consistency guarantees.

CREATE KEYSPACE ExampleKeyspace WITH REPLICATION = { 'class' :
'NetworkTopologyStrategy', 'us-east' : 3 };

CREATE KEYSPACE ExampleKeyspace WITH REPLICATION = { 'class' :
'NetworkTopologyStrategy', 'us-west-2' : 3 };
