Subject Re: Meaning of 'nodetool repair has to run within GCGraceSeconds'
Date Mon, 11 Jul 2011 18:33:50 GMT
Instead of doing nodetool repair, is it not a cheaper operation to
keep tab of failed writes (be it deletes or inserts or updates) and
read these failed writes at a set frequency in some batch job ? By
reading them, RR would get triggered and they would get to a
consistent state.

Because these would targeted reads (only for those that failed during
writes), it should be a shorter list and quick to repair (than
nodetool repair).
