Can't explain the files though, are you referring to the files timestamp or the Unix timestamp in the file name? Is there a node that's been down for several months?On Wed., 13 Jun. 2018, 23:41 Nitan Kainth, <nitankainth@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hi,I observed a strange behavior about stored hints.Time stamp of hints file shows several months old. I deleted them and saw new hints files created with same old date. Why is that?Also, I see hints files on disk but if I query system.hints table, it shows 0 rows. Why system.hints is not populated?Version 3.11-1
