Astyanax Cassandra driver removes host unexpectedly during batch inserting


<strong>Astyanax 1.56.37 connecting to Cassandra 1.2.6 running on Debian:</strong>

When performing a number of inserts in quick succession to a Cassandra cluster containing only one node located at, at seemingly random points, I will see the following in the console:

- AddHost: - RemoveHost:

Every attempt to connect to this keyspace after I get this fails with the same message.

Here is my configuration:

AstyanaxContext<Keyspace> context = new AstyanaxContext.Builder() .forCluster("Titan Cluster") .forKeyspace(keyspaceName) .withAstyanaxConfiguration(new AstyanaxConfigurationImpl() .setConnectionPoolType(ConnectionPoolType.TOKEN_AWARE) .setDiscoveryType(NodeDiscoveryType.RING_DESCRIBE) .setTargetCassandraVersion("1.2") ) .withConnectionPoolConfiguration(new ConnectionPoolConfigurationImpl("MyConnectionPool") .setPort(9160) .setMaxConnsPerHost(50) .setSeeds("") .setConnectTimeout(2000) .setSocketTimeout(30000) .setMaxTimeoutWhenExhausted(10000) .setMaxTimeoutCount(3) .setTimeoutWindow(10000) .setLatencyAwareBadnessThreshold(10) .setLatencyAwareUpdateInterval(1000) .setLatencyAwareResetInterval(10000) .setLatencyAwareWindowSize(100) ) .withConnectionPoolMonitor(new CountingConnectionPoolMonitor()) .buildKeyspace(ThriftFamilyFactory.getInstance()); context.start();

The connection fails on subsequent attempts at context.start()


I too faced the same issue where I had my Cassandra and application (Cassandra client) running on different machines.

AddHost: AddHost: RemoveHost:

When I checked my Cassandra ring status, I noticed that the Cassandra was running with the address, instead of

root@$ **bin/nodetool ring** Address Rack Status State Load Owns Token rack1 Up Normal 169.87 KB 100.00% -9217929600007243236 rack1 Up Normal 169.87 KB 100.00% -9140762708880451456 rack1 Up Normal 169.87 KB 100.00% -8952943573583903866 rack1 Up Normal 169.87 KB 100.00% -8891950316930533160*

In conf/cassandra.yaml, I had specified the hostname instead of IP address for listen_address. The cassandra resoved the hostname to localhost ( instead of the actual IP ( After changing the listen_address to the actual IP, the client established connection successfully.



I was running Cassandra on VirtualBox on Windows, so the IP was something like, and for me, using NodeDiscoveryType.NONE prevented disconnections:

AstyanaxContext<Keyspace> context = new AstyanaxContext.Builder() .forCluster(clusterName) .forKeyspace(keyspaceName) .withAstyanaxConfiguration(new AstyanaxConfigurationImpl() .setDiscoveryType(NodeDiscoveryType.NONE) ) .withConnectionPoolConfiguration(new ConnectionPoolConfigurationImpl("MyConnectionPool") .setPort(9160) .setMaxConnsPerHost(3) .setSeeds("") ) .withConnectionPoolMonitor(new CountingConnectionPoolMonitor()) .buildKeyspace(ThriftFamilyFactory.getInstance()); context.start(); Keyspace keyspace = context.getClient();
