Implications of partitions on read.consistency_level=all and write.commit_level=all and AP (re CAP)


#1

What will be the outcome if read.consistency_level=all and write.commit_level=all is used and one or more replicas are not visible? Does all then translate to all visible, or will transactions fail effectively resulting in CP system?


#2

Please see Understanding Consistency Level Overrides which will explain how these behave. But basically the answer to you question is no, these settings will not result in a CP system.
