Subject Re: Question about info returned from 'nodetool gossipinfo'
Date Mon, 07 Oct 2013 06:40:14 GMT
the output of "nodetool gossipinfo" are the application states of each endpoint/node in the
cluster that are exchanged b/w the nodes during gossiping.

"Severity" is basically a measure of compaction activity/events in a node ( see
for the details on how it is used by dynamic snitching).

LOAD is the data size (sum of size of all the ColumnFamilies in a node).

the number next to the STATUS line is the token assigned to that node. you seem to be using
Murmur3Partitioner, which has negative tokens.

Does anyone know what the information that comes from the "nodetool gossipinfo" command means? 

For example, what is the LOAD #'s meaning or the SEVERITY #? My load is 91457.0 and SEVERITY:
22.448. Also, next to STATUS:NORMAL is a negative #: -123311655.... what does that # mean?
