Subject Upgrade Limitations Question
Date Wed, 09 Sep 2015 19:09:52 GMT
Hello All,

I've asked this on the Cassandra IRC channel earlier, but I am asking the
list as well so that I get feedback from more people.

We have recently upgraded from Cassandra 1.2.19 to 2.0.16 and we are
currently in the stage where all boxes are running 2.0.16 but nt
upgradesstables has not yet been performed on all of them. Reading the
DataStax docs [1] :

   - Do not issue these types of queries during a rolling restart: DDL,

In our case the restart bit has already been done. Do you know if it would
be a bad idea to create a new KS before all nodes have upgraded their
SSTables? Our concern is the time it takes to go through every single node,
run the upgradesstables and wait until it's all done. We think creating a
new KS wouldn't be a problem (someone on the channel said the same thing,
but recommended that we play safe and wait until it's all done). But if
anyone has any catastrophic experiences in doing so we would appreciate
their input.

Many thanks,
