cassandraEmbedded Section

Note: The options in this section are applicable only when enabled = true.

enabled (Cluster Only)

Description: Indicates whether the Embedded Cassandra service is enabled.
Mandatory: No
Default Value: true
Valid Values: true, false
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

clusterName (Cluster Only)

Description: The name of the cluster. This setting prevents nodes in one logical cluster from joining another. All nodes in a cluster must have the same value.
Default Value: Cluster
Valid Values: Valid string
Mandatory: No
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

endpointSnitch (Cluster Only)

Description: A snitch determines which data centers and racks nodes belong to. They inform Cassandra about the network topology so that requests are routed efficiently. They also allow Cassandra to distribute replicas by grouping machines into data centers and racks. Specifically, the replication strategy places the replicas based on the information provided by the new snitch as described at http://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.1/cassandra/architecture/architectureSnitchesAbout_c.html.
Default Value: GossipingPropertyFileSnitch
Valid Values: SimpleSnitch, GossipingPropertyFileSnitch, PropertyFileSnitch, Ec2Snitch, Ec2MultiRegionSnitch, RackInferringSnitch
Mandatory: No
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

partitioner (Cluster Only)

Description: A partitioner determines how data is distributed across the nodes in the cluster (including replicas). Basically, a partitioner is a function for deriving a token representing a row from its partition key, typically by hashing. Each row of data is then distributed across the cluster by the value of the token, as described at http://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.1/cassandra/architecture/architecturePartitionerAbout_c.html.
Default Value: org.apache.cassandra.dht.Murmur3Partitioner
Valid Values: org.apache.cassandra.dht.RandomPartitioner, org.apache.cassandra.dht.RandomPartitioner, org.apache.cassandra.dht.Murmur3Partitioner
Mandatory: No
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

dataDirectory

Description: The directory location where table data (SSTables) is stored. Cassandra distributes data evenly across the location, subject to the granularity of the configured compaction strategy.

Mandatory: No
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

commitLogDirectory

Description: The directory where the commit log is stored.
Default Value: ./storage/commitlog

Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

savedCachesDirectory

Description: The directory location where table key and row caches are stored.
Default Value: ./storage/saved_caches
Valid Values: Valid folder path
Mandatory: No
Changes Take Effect: After start/restart

seedNodes (Cluster Only)

Description: A comma-delimited list of IP addresses used by gossip for bootstrapping new nodes joining a cluster. In multiple data-center clusters, the seed list should include at least one node from each data center (replication group). More than a single seed node per data center is recommended for fault tolerance. Otherwise, gossip has to communicate with another data center when bootstrapping a node. Making every node a seed node is not recommended because of increased maintenance and reduced gossip performance. Gossip optimization is not critical, but Genesys recommends that you use a small seed list. For more information, refer to https://docs.datastax.com/en/cassandra/2.0/cassandra/architecture/architectureGossipAbout_c.html.
