Benjamin,

Yes i have seen this when adding a new node into the cluster.  the new node doesnt see the complete ring through nodetool, but the strange part is that looking at the ring through jconsole shows the complete ring.  it as if there is a big in nodetool publishing the actual ring.  has anyone seen that scenario.  while in this situation is does appear that the cluster is functioning correctly with replicating data, just cant trust nodetools ring information.

Does this happen after you have changed the ring topology, especially
adding nodes?
