Hi Janne,

It's not clear whether the issue was that it was taking a long time to
restart (i.e replaying WALs) or if somehow you also ended up having to
re-replicate a bunch of tablets from host to host in the cluster. There
were some bugs in earlier versions of Kudu (eg KUDU-2125, KUDU-2020) which
could make this process rather slow to stabilize.

If this issue happens again, running 'kudu cluster ksck' during the
instable period can often yield more information to help understand what is

What version are you running?
