Could you please share the patch. I have build Cassandra before from source. I can definitely give it try.
> Is it possible to retain the commit logs?In off-the-shelf cassandra 0.6.5 this is not possible, AFAIK.
I developed a patch we use internally in our company for commit
log archivation and replay.
I can share a patch with you, if you dare patching cassandra
sources by yourself ;-)
PS. Are other ppl interested in this functionality ?
I could file it to JIRA as well...
