Subject Question about replacing a dead node
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2014 16:12:38 GMT

in the last week week, we saw at least two emails about dead node
replacement. Though I saw the documentation about how to do this, i am not
sure I understand why this is required.

Assuming replication factor is >2, if a node dies, why does it matter? If
we add a new node is added, shouldn't it just take the chunk of data it
server as the "primary" node from the other existing nodes.
Why do we need to worry about replacing the dead node?
