Subject Re: moving all data to new cluster ?
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 20:01:34 GMT
Thanks for the link Rob, but I did try earlier to
copy the SSTables over and then to refresh them,
but this is a brand new cluster and the error I got
back indicated that the keyspace didn't exist, and
then figured I needed to copy everything over in
the data directory.

I have built a new 4 node cluster and would like to move the data
from the current 2 node cluster to the new cluster. What would be
the best way to move the data and utilize it on the new cluster. I
have looked at snapshot and also just copying the entire tree from
the old cluster to the new cluster. Not sure what the best practice
would be. I'm testing that process now in preparation for moving the
current data (production) to the new larger ring (systems are bigger
and more memory) and decommission the older ring (smaller systems,
less memory).

In your case, I would just copy all sstables to all target nodes and run cleanup.
