We are using nodejs driver to connect to cassandra and we use the retry policy when localquorum cannot be satisfied.
when there is a node down and this policy kicks in, the log says the consistency 6 . here is the example log message .
"retrying query with lower consistency" retryCount=3 consistency=6 required=2 alive=1
the enum configured for localquorum
Can someone please explain why the consistency is enumed.
