You can ship the sstables to the destination (or any other server with Cassandra binary tools installed) via ssh/rsync and run sstableloader on the destination cluster as well.

Subject: Export/Importing keyspace from a different sized cluster

 

Hello,

 

Assuming I can’t get ports opened from source to target cluster to run sstableloader, what methods can I use to load a single keyspace from one cluster to another cluster of different size?

 

Appreciate the help…

 

Thanks,

Justin
