We’re very pleased to announce the 1.0 release of tlp-stress! tlp-stress is a workload centric benchmarking tool we’ve built for Apache Cassandra to make performance testing easier. We introduced it around this time last year and have used it to do a variety of testing for ourselves, customers, and the Cassandra project itself. We’re very happy with how far it’s come and we’re excited to share it with the world as a stable release. You can read about some of the latest features in our blog post from last month. The main difference between tlp-stress and cassandra stress is the inclusion of workloads out of the box. You should be able to get up and running with tlp-stress in under 5 minutes, testing the most commonly used data models and access patterns.

This article looks at hostname verification for internode encryption, which is designed to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. This is a follow-up to the first hardening Cassandra post that explored internode encryption. If you have not already done so, take a moment and read through the earlier post before proceeding.
