Subject data not replicated on new node
Date Sun, 20 Nov 2016 18:35:59 GMT
Hello everybody,

I am using a 3-node Cassandra cluster with Cassandra 3.0.10.

I recently added a new node (to make it a 3-node cluster).

I am using a replication factor of 3 , so I expected to have a copy of 
the same data on each node :

CREATE KEYSPACE mydata WITH replication = {'class': 'SimpleStrategy', 
'replication_factor': '3'}  AND durable_writes = true;

But the new node has  less data that the other 2 :

Datacenter: datacenter1
|/ State=Normal/Leaving/Joining/Moving
--  Address       Load       Tokens       Owns (effective)  Host 
ID                               Rack
UN  XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX  53.28 GB   256          100.0% xxxxxx  rack1
UN  XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX  64.7 GB    256          100.0% xxxxxx  rack1
UN  XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX  1.28 GB    256          100.0% xxxxxx  rack1

On the new node :

total 1.2G

on one of the old nodes :

total 52G

I am monitoring the amount of data on each node, and they grow at the 
same rate. So I suspect that my new data are replicated on the 3 nodes 
but the old data stored on the first 2 nodes are not replicated on the 
new node.

I ran nodetool repair (on each node, one at a time), but the new node 
still does not have a copy of the old data.

Could you please help me understand why the old data is not replicated 
to the new node ? Please let me know if you need further information.

Thank you,
