Incorrect, ONE does not refer to the number of “other" nodes, it just refers to the number of nodes. so ONE under normal circumstances would only require one node to acknowledge the write.The confusing error message you are getting is related to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-833… Kevin you are correct in that normally that error message would make no sense.I don’t have much experience adding/removing nodes, but I think what is happening is that your new node is in the middle of taken over ownership of a token range - while that happens C* is trying to write to both the old owner (your original node), AND (hence the 2 not 1 in the error message) the new owner (the new node) so that once the bootstrapping of the new node is complete, it is immediately safe to delete the (no longer owned data) from the old node. For whatever reason the write to the new node is timing out, causing the exception, and the error message is exposing the “2” which happens to be how many C* thinks it is waiting for at the time (i.e. how many it should be waiting for based on the consistency level (1) plus this extra node).On Jul 22, 2014, at 9:46 PM, Andrew <email@example.com> wrote:
ONE means write to one replica (in addition to the original). If you want to write to any of them, use ANY. Is that the right understanding?Andrew
