Subject Re: nodetool repair on cluster
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2011 17:18:41 GMT
Thanks Jonathan, Aaron, Daniel!  I have a related question.

I would like to get a copy of data from these 12-server cluster with
manually assigned babanced server tokens, and set it up on a new cluster.  I
would like to minimize the number of the server on the new cluster without
having to  build 12 servers on new cluster, copy snapshots from old cluster
to new cluster, and start de-commission some servers on new cluster to get
it down to the desired number of servers on the new cluster.  I am OK with
missing data since the last repair ran on the old cluster.   Would the
following data copy strategy work?

Create a new cluster with 4 servers and manually assign balanced server
tokens to these four servers; copy most recent snapshot from every 3rd
server from the old cluster (of 12 servers) and put them on the new cluster
in the same order as they were from old cluster.  Run repair on every other
node or all nodes on new cluster.
