Subject Re: Host score calculation for dynamic_snitch
Date Sun, 10 Apr 2011 01:23:04 GMT
Recent discussion on dynamic snitch for some background

1) Adapted phi failure detector as used by gossip, see o.a.c.locator.DynamicEndpointSnitch
2) tracks last 100 responses from a node 
3) in memory only
4) it's expensive when compared to storing a latency. It loops through all known nodes and
calcs it's score which requires looping through all scores.
