Hello,

 

I’m doing some test with cassandra 1.0.8 using multiple data directories with individual disks in a three node cluster (replica=3).

One of the tests was to replace a couple of disks and start a repair process.

It started ok and refilled the disks but I noticed that after the recovery process finished, it started a new one again:

Is this normal? To me it doesn’t make much sense.
