Subject Range Slice Issue
Date Tue, 03 May 2011 17:31:55 GMT
We appear to have encountered an issue with cassandra 0.7.5 after upgrading from 0.7.2. While
doing a batch read using a get_range_slice against the ranges an individual node is master
for we are able to reproduce consistently that the last two nodes in the ring, regardless
of the ring size (we have a 60 node production cluster and a 12 node test cluster) perform
this read over the network using replicas of executing locally. Every other node in the ring
successfully reads locally.

To be sure there were no data consistency issues we performed a nodetool repair against both
of these nodes and the issue persists. We also tried truncating the column family and repopulating,
but the issue remains.

This seems to be related to CASSANDRA-2286 in 0.7.4. We always want to read data locally if
it is available there. We use Cassandra.Client.describe_ring() to figure out which machine
in the ring is master for which TokenRange. I then compare the master for each TokenRange
against the localhost to find out which token ranges are owned by the local machine (remote
reads are too slow for this type of batch processing). Once I know which TokenRanges are on
each machine locally I get evenly sized splits using Cassandra.Client.describe_splits().
