Subject Re: Data retrieval inconsistent
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2011 22:09:32 GMT
Thanks Ed and Jeremiah for that useful info.
"I am pretty sure the way you have K1 configured it will be placed across
both DC's as if you had large ring.  If you want it only in DC1 you need to
say DC1:1, DC2:0."
Infact i do want K1 to be available across both DCs as if i had a large
ring. I just do not want them to replicate over across DCs. Also i did try
doing it like you said DC1:1, DC2:0 but wont that mean that, all my data
goes into DC1 irrespective of whether the data is getting into the nodes of
DC1 or DC2, thereby creating a "hot DC"? Since the volume of data for this
case is huge, that might create a load imbalance on DC1? (Am i missing
something?)
