Subject Re: [python] [flask] [CQLAlchemy] NoHostAvailable on create
Date Mon, 01 Jan 2018 20:14:46 GMT
Still getting the cassandra.cluster.NoHostAvailable error periodically from
uWSGI hosts. Setting up the connection with postfork:
https://github.com/alanhamlett/flask-cqlalchemy/blob/653ed3298af7dd617a972e9f87437f6e53f741b9/flask_cqlalchemy/__init__.py#L56

Lazy connection is False, Retry connection is True. Could this be a bug in
cassandra-driver's connection pooling?

P.S. Blocking a web app when connection isn't available (default non-lazy
connect) is really bad. With a web app you want requests that don't depend
on Cassandra to complete, but cassandra-driver blocks all requests when
there's no Cassandra connection even if it's not needed for the current web
app's request. This design decision gives me very low confidence in the
Python cassandra-driver.
