Subject Re: Inconsistent data after adding a new DC and rebuilding

well .. thats pretty much the same we saw in our environment (cassandra 3.7).

in our case a full repair fixed the issues.
but no doubt .. it would be more satisfying to know the root cause for that issue

Here is the netstats output of one of the new newly added nodes:

we have seen similar issues here.

have you verified that your rebuilds have been finished successfully? we have seen rebuilds
that stopped streaming and working but have not finished.
what does nodetool netstats output for your newly built up nodes?

We recently added a new datacenter to our cluster and run "nodetool rebuild -- <DC_current>"
in all 5 new nodes, one by one.

After this process finished we noticed there is data missing from the new datacenter, although
it exists on the current one.

How would that be possible? Should I maybe have run repair in all nodes of the current DC
before adding the new one?

Running Cassandra 2.1.15

Kind regards,
