Subject Re: Reaper repair seems to "hang"

Hi Daniel,

Looks like yours is a different case. If you're running incremental repair
for the first time it make take long time esp. if table is large. And
repair may seem to stuck even when things are working.

You can try nodetool compactionstats when repair appears stuck, you'll find
a validation compaction happening if that's indeed the case.

For the first incremental repair you can follow this doc, in further
repairs incremental repair should encounter very few sstables:

Regards,
Bhuvan

Hi Bhuvan,

Thank you so very much for your detailed reply.
Just to ensure everyone is across the same information, and responses are
not duplicated across two different forums, I thought I'd share with the
mailing list that I've created a GitHub issue at: https://github.com/
thelastpickle/cassandra-reaper/issues/39

Kind regards,
Daniel
