Subject Re: nodetool status and node maintenance

Agree - avoid parsing nodetool, if you can.  I’d add that if anyone out there is interested
in JMX but doesn’t want to deal with Java, you should install Jolokia so you can interact
with Cassandra’s JMX data via a language independent REST-like interface. <>

Jolokia is what made it possible for us to get out of nodetool parsing and into writing tools
in our native language — Python.  We’re big fans!
