Benjamin Lerer commented on CASSANDRA-15234:

{quote}Do we need to remove the legacy parameters if they continue to mean the 
same thing? I think we should generally defer breaking deprecated public APIs 
until it's useful or necessary. We're doing this to cleanup for ourselves and 
for future users, not to make existing users have a bad time.
[~benedict] Do you want to keep the backward compatibility forever or do you 
think that 5.0 is too soon to remove it?

> We have a bunch of inconsistent names and config patterns in the codebase, 
> both from the yams and JVM properties.  It would be nice to standardise the 
> naming (such as otc_ vs internode_) as well as the provision of values with 
> units - while maintaining perpetual backwards compatibility with the old 
> parameter names, of course.
> For temporal units, I would propose parsing strings with suffixes of:
> {{code}}
> u|micros(econds?)?
> ms|millis(econds?)?
> s(econds?)?
> m(inutes?)?
> h(ours?)?
> d(ays?)?
> mo(nths?)?
> {{code}}
> For rate units, I would propose parsing any of the standard {{B/s, KiB/s, 
> MiB/s, GiB/s, TiB/s}}.
> Perhaps for avoiding ambiguity we could not accept bauds {{bs, Mbps}} or 
> powers of 1000 such as {{KB/s}}, given these are regularly used for either 
> their old or new definition e.g. {{KiB/s}}, or we could support them and 
> simply log the value in bytes/s.
