Can I rerun sstableloader against only some nodes?

my sstableloader failed with a "Stream failed" result vs 3 of 14 nodes. I saw a hint that I could speed up a rerun by targeting only those nodes, but cant find an option for that.

Is it possible to tell sstableloader to load only to 3 nodes of a cluster? This load was on hour 20 of 24+, so I want to save some of that time if I can.

It sounds like you're referring to the "ignore" flag (--ignore ip1,ip2,...) which prevents data from getting streamed to a given list of nodes.

You can try using that flag but be aware that if some data weren't completely streamed to the nodes, you will end up with inconsistent replicas. Cheers!
