Subject Re: nodetool repair seems to increase linearly with number of keyspaces
Date Mon, 25 Nov 2013 17:36:30 GMT
We have the same setup:  one keyspace per client, and currently about 300
keyspaces.  nodetool repair takes a long time, 4 hours with -pr on a single
node.  We have a 4 node cluster with about 10 gb per node.  Unfortunately,
we haven't been keeping track of the running time as keyspaces, or load,
