Subject Stale value appears after consecutive TRUNCATE
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2016 05:34:16 GMT
Hi all,

I have a question about clearing table and commit log replay.
After some tables were truncated consecutively, I got some stale values.
This problem doesn't occur when I clear keyspaces with DROP (and CREATE).

I'm testing the following test with node failure.
Some stale values appear at checking phase.

Test iteration:
1. initialize tables as below
2. request a lot of read/write concurrently
3. check all records
4. repeat from the beginning

I use C* 2.2.6. There are 3 nodes (replication_factor: 3).
Each node kills cassandra process at random intervals and restarts it

My initialization:
1. clear tables with TRUNCATE
2. INSERT initial records
3. check if all values are correct

If any phase fails (because of node failure), the initialization starts all
over again.
So, tables are sometimes truncated consecutively.
Though the check in the initialization is OK, stale data appears when I
execute "SELECT * FROM mykeyspace.mytable;" after a lot of requests are

The problem is likely to occur when the ReplayPosition's value in
"truncated_at" is initialized as below after an empty table is truncated.

Column Family ID: truncated_at
XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX: 0xffffffffffffffff000000000000
(this value was acquired just after phase 1 in my initialization)

I guess some unexpected replays occur.
Does anyone know the behavior?
