Subject Understanding gossip protocol in cassandra
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:27:06 GMT
Hi all,

Please, i try to undestand how gossip protocol is used in cassandra.

I read this:

“This is most critical the first time a node starts up. By default, a node
remembers other nodes it has gossiped with between subsequent restarts. *The
seed node designation has no purpose other than bootstrapping the gossip
process* for new nodes joining the cluster. Seed nodes are not a single
point of failure, nor do they have any other special purpose in cluster
operations beyond the bootstrapping of nodes.


I understand that the seed node starst gossip protocol and then, the new
nodes join the seed node i.e send their state informations to the seed node

Then, the seed node broadcast received informations to all nodes on the
ring ?

That’s it ?

Thank you so much for all explanations.

Best Reagrds.
