Subject Re: Partition range incremental repairs
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2017 10:57:36 GMT
Hi all,

Wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this? At the moment the long running repairs cause
us to be running them on two nodes at once for a bit of time, which obivould increases the
cluster load.

repairs (default for Cassandra 2.2 and later)'

I was hoping to see a speed up after the first loop through the cluster as each repair will
be marking much more data as repaired, right?>
