Subject Re: Cassandra Repair Duration.

Hi Karthick, repairs can be tricky.  

You can (and probably should) run repairs as apart of routine maintenance.  And of course
absolutely if you lose a node in a bad way.  If you decommission a node for example, no “extra”
repair needed. 

If you are using TWCS you should probably not run repairs on those cf.

We have a combination of scripts and locks to run repairs across an 18 node cluster 1 node
at a time, typically takes around 2-3days and so we run it once a week.  

The great folks at tlp have put together which makes managing
repairs even easier and probably more performant since as I understand, it used range repairs.

Good luck,

has increased drastically and we are also facing Query timeouts during that time and we have
tried incremental repair facing some OOM issues.
