am implementing a distributed application which runs on 100s of machines
concurrently. This application is going to use Cassandra as underlaying
application creates the schema
(name space and column families) during initialization phase.
It seems I have two options
to create the schema.
Option - 1 :
Using a single node for schema creation.
Option - 2: Having all the nodes (> 100) to run the same schema creation
logic (First, nodes will check whether the schema is already available and then
try to create the schema if it is not available already).
keep the initialization phase simple, I prefer to go for Option - 2. However I
am not sure how Cassandra is going to behave if multiple nodes try to create the
same schema (namespace and column families) concurrently. It would be nice if
someone can tell me about the implications of Option - 2 with Cassandra version
Please let me know if you have
