Subject going back in time
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 13:36:04 GMT
  One of the scenarios I have to have in account for a small Cassandra cluster (N=4) is
restoring the data back in time. I will have full backups for 15 days, and it's possible
that I will need to restore, let's say, the data from 10 days ago (don't ask, I'm not 
going into the details why). 

  I know/suspect that restores by KeySpace/ColumnFamily are possible (we haven't tested 
yet), but I wonder if it would there any side effects of stopping all the nodes 
(assuming cut to the other KS are OK), restoring the SSTables, and starting the nodes 
one by one.

  So far we're thinking in RF=4, but also in RF=3 or at least RF<N in the future. Is 
all this crazy talk or is it possible? Any side effects in the KS system and/or indexes 
to have in account?
