In celebration of National Pickle Day, we’re proud to announce the 1.0 version of Reaper for Apache Cassandra. This release is a huge milestone for us. We’d like to start by thanking everyone who’s reported bugs and helped us test. We’d especially love to give a huge thank you to the teams which have sponsored development of the project along the way.

In this blog post we will take a look at consistency mechanisms in Apache Cassandra. There are three reasonably well documented features serving this purpose:

We’re delighted to introduce cassandra-reaper.io, the dedicated site for the open source Reaper project! Since we adopted Reaper from the incredible folks at Spotify, we’ve added a significant number of features, expanded the supported versions past 2.0, added support for incremental repair, and added a Cassandra backend to simplify operations.

A handy feature was silently added to Apache Cassandra’s nodetool just over a year ago. The feature added was the -j (jobs) option. This little gem controls the number of compaction threads to use when running either a scrub, cleanup, or upgradesstables. The option was added to nodetool via CASSANDRA-11179 to version 3.5. It has been back ported to Apache Cassandra versions 2.1.14, 2.2.6, and 3.5.
