Subject Meaning of 'nodetool repair has to run within GCGraceSeconds'
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2011 20:25:29 GMT
I am little confused of the reason why nodetool repair has to run
within GCGraceSeconds.

The documentation at:
is not very clear to me.

How can a delete be 'unforgotten' if I don't run nodetool repair? (I
understand that if a node is down for more than GCGraceSeconds, I
should not get it up without resynching is completely. Otherwise
deletes may reappear.
But not sure how exactly nodetool repair ties into this mechanism of
distributed deletes.

Thanks for any clarifications.
