The first step in using reaper is to add a cluster to it, as it is a tool
that can manage multiple clusters and does not need to be executed on a
Cassandra node (you can run in on any edge node you want).

You should run : ./bin/spreaper add-cluster
Where you'll replace by the address of one of the nodes of your

Then you can run : ./bin/spreaper cluster_name keyspace_name
to start repairing a keyspace.

You might want to drop in the UI made by Stefan Podkowinski which might
ease things up for you, at least at the beginning :

Worth mentioning that at The Last Pickle we maintain a fork of Reaper that
handles incremental repair, works with C* 2.x and 3.0, and bundles the UI :
We have a branch that allows using Cassandra as a storage backend instead
of Postgres :
It should be merged to master really soon and should be ready to use.
