I've recently upgraded our Cassandra cluster from 2.1 to 3.9. By default(?)
3.9 creates a debug.log file containing a ton of lines (a new one every
DEBUG [GossipTasks:1] 2016-10-12 14:43:38,761 Gossiper.java:337 -
> Convicting /172.31.137.65 with status hibernate - alive false
That node has not been around for a very long time now.
It does not show up in nodetool status and nodetool gossipinfo returns the
following output about that node:
nodetool removenode 7988d3c9-dec8-4b71-b5a9-0b962aad0680 resulted in:
error: Host ID not found.
Now my questions are:
1. What does it mean for a node to be "hibernating"? How does it end up
in that state?
2. How do I get rid of it? Its not coming back.
