Can you do an insert with CL ALL?

Are there any ERRORs in the log file? Try turning the logging up the TRACE and see whats happening.

Check B and see A by ssh'ing into B and using node tool from there to connect to A.

Do you have any switches / firewalls between the nodes ? Could this be happening http://www.mail-archive.com/user@cassandra.apache.org/msg03813.html

Good luck

BTW,

A is 192.168.11.29
B is 192.168.11.28
C is 192.168.11.27

from the result of nodetool ring, does it mean that B thinks A, C are down and C thinks B is down?

I tried to restart B and for a bring moment, I didn't get this problem (all the nodes are all from nodetool) but after a while, this problem came back.

What could be the issue?

thanks,
Claire
