Subject Re: Bootstraping a new node
Date Fri, 29 Sep 2017 11:53:03 GMT
Thx @Jacob, I was reading that article, I dont understand how we can add a
node in the cluster using auto_bootstrap equal to false and not having a
maldistribution of tokens.

I know that cassandra use random token ranges if it doesn't have tokens
So it doesn't compute the new tokens ranges from the existing ones.

it could lead to some tokens being owned by two nodes, am I right ?
