Subject Re: Repairing without -pr shows unexpected out-of-sync ranges
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:16:08 GMT
I was wondering: is (2) a direct consequence of a repair on the full
token range (and thus anti-compaction ran only on a subset of the RF
nodes)?. If I understand correctly, a repair with -pr should fix this,
at the cost of all nodes performing the anticompaction phase?
