Subject Re: Understanding Read and Writes During Transient States
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2013 23:40:49 GMT
When a node is joining/bootstrapping the ring and replication factor
is 3, the write operation should be delivered to 4 nodes. The three
current natural endpoints and the new one. In this way if the joining
node fails to join the other nodes did not miss any writes.

The joining node will not answer read requests until it is done bootstrapping.
