Subject Re: How many vnodes should I use for each node in my cluster?
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2016 17:09:42 GMT
Thanks for the input. I just kicked off another repair for one keyspace.
Per the log, there are 1536 ranges to repair through. This makes sense:
there are 6 nodes in the cluster, each having 256 token ranges, so 6*256 =
1536. So far, it is averaging 1 range per minute. So repair the keyspace
will take more than a day on this rate. I guess the only thing I can do is
to upgrade to 2.1 and start using incremental repair?
