Subject Re: Safe to run cleanup before repair?
Date Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:00:21 GMT
Yeah, sounds right. What I'm worried about is the following:
I used to have only 2 nodes with RF 2 so both nodes had a copy of all data.
There were incosistencies since I was unable to run repair, so some parts
of the data may only exist on one node. I have now added two nodes, thus
changing which nodes own what parts of the data. My concern is if a piece
of data is now owned by say Node 1 and Node 3 but before the addition of
new nodes only existed on Node 2 and a cleanup would then delete it
permanently since Node 2 no longer owns it. Could this ever happen?
