I have just been learning Cassandra from using my home lab w/ v3.x however the reason is I've been handed a very old v1.2 ring which is live in production (yes, I know!). From time to time, we (DBA team) have to do cleanups and repairs on the keySpaces. My questions is, how do you automate or simplify this process? It's a nightmare for the DBA. We have to SSH to each server, fire up a screen session because it takes so long, SSH will time out and finally run the command and wait until the prompt is returned to the bash shell and move on to the next node in the ring. Each node can take over 1hr time and we are scaling so as time goes on, this process becomes more unmanageable. Appreciate any and all suggestions on how to perform DBA maintenance that is smarter, not harder.
