A single physical machine is used to simulate a multinodes Cassandra clusters. The nodes have their
cassandra.yaml which configure the seeds nodes as:
seed_provider: - class_name: org.apache.cassandra.locator.SimpleSeedProvider parameters: - seeds: "127.0.0.1, 127.0.0.2, 127.0.0.3"
Q1. Is it OK for the seed node to have it's own IP address listed in the
Q2. Let's assume one or two seed nodes are temporarily down. Would that increase a lot of gossip messages between running nodes?
