Cassandra node says it owns 0%??

Today I ran in a little bit of a problem with an new Cassandra node installation.

After the node was created, I ran nodetool and got this:

 $ bin/nodetool status
Datacenter: dc1
|/ State=Normal/Leaving/Joining/Moving
--  Address    Load       Tokens       Owns (effective)  Host ID   Rack
UN  219.83 KiB 256          0.0%              73bd8721  rack1

It took me a little while to find out that the problem was the IP address. Although it clearly says here, the cassandra.yaml configuration file had localhost.

I edited the cassandra.yaml (after a while trying to find why that would happen) and changed all the localhost into Then it worked as expected and the node said 100.0%.


1. This was testing  the brand new Cassandra 3.9 that just came out (so fresh that most mirrors I tested did not even have the file yet!)

2. The problem is probably that there is a mismatch between localhost and localhost :::1 (i.e. IPv4 and IPv6). So it is listening on IPv4 and the nodetool connects through IPv6. Or something of the sort.

3. My previous version (3.5) was working with localhost in the cassandra.yaml, so that was a new one on that end. That being said, I have had problems with the name confusion before.

    Very Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon, an FTP server that allows people to transfer data between computers. It is marked as very secure, at least it is as secure as an FTP server can be (although there has been several security advisories for this tool...)

    Remember that an FTP transfer is rarely using an encrypted pipe (it is possible to use kerberos and SSL to really secure the data transmission) and also because it uses a data stream opened dynamically, it is possible for hackers to spoof a data connection.
