I want to understand the behavior of aerospike in different consistancy mode.
Consider a aerospike cluster running with 3 nodes and replication factor 3.
AP modes is simple and it says
Aerospike will allow reads and writes in every sub-cluster.
And Maximum no. of node which can go down < 3 (replication factor)
For aerospike strong consistency it says
Note that the only successful writes are those made on replication-factor number of nodes. Every other write is unsuccessful
Does this really means the no writes are allowed if available nodes < replication factor.
And then same document says
All writes are committed to every replica before the system returns success to the client. In case one of the replica writes fails, the master will ensure that the write is completed to the appropriate number of replicas within the cluster (or sub cluster in case the system has been compromised.)
appropriate number of replica means ?
So if I lose one node from my 3 node cluster with strong consistency and replication factor 3 , I will not be able to wright data ?
