Will each node show the same number of records?


#1

Suppose we have a configuration where:

  • 10 total database nodes
  • Replication factor of 3

Now suppose we run an asinfo on each of the 10 nodes and look at the number of records reported for a given set.

Q: Should we expect to see the exact same answer on all 10 nodes?

We’re implementing some end-user tools that report a few key indicators, and are wondering whether a difference in record count between nodes represents an error condition or an expected condition.

Thanks.

hi mstein,

No. Number of records on each node will not be the same. They will be similar, but are not at all guaranteed to be the same.
