Subject RE: network down between DCs
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2017 09:17:58 GMT

within the default hint window of 3 hours, the hinted handoff mechanism should take care of
that, but we have seen that failing from time to time (depending on the load) in 2.1 with
some sort of tombstone related issues causing failing requests on the system hints table.
So, watch out any sign of hinted handoff troubles in the Cassandra log.

Hint storage has been re-written in 3.0+ to flat files, thus tombstone related troubles in
that area should be gone.

That’s correct.

You need to run repairs only after a node/DC/connection is down for more then max_hint_window_in_ms.

Hi there,

We have two DCs for a Cassandra Cluster,if the network is down less than 3 hours(default hint
window),with my understanding,it will recover automatically,right?Do we need to run repair
