Re: Upgrade to version 3


It seems that you could face a data loss while upgrading to Cassandra 3.11.3. Apparently, it is still somewhat unsafe to upgrade Cassandra to C*3, even if you use the latest C*3.0.17/3.11.3. According to Blake who reported and worked on the fix:

[...], which will lead to duplicate start bounds being emitted, and incorrect dropping of rows in some cases

It's a bug that was recently fixed and that should be soon released, I hope.

I imagine that a lot of people did this upgrade already, it might be just fine for you as well. Yet you might want to explore this issue and maybe consider to wait for this patch to be released to reduce the risks (or apply this patch yourself).

If we are upgrading from version 2.2 to 3.x, should we go directly to latest version 3.11.3?

Anything we need to look out for?  If anyone can point to an upgrade process that would be great!
