Now, let's extend our node to a five-node cluster from a three-node cluster. Let's take two new loopback IPs as
Here, we're using loopback IPs for the simplicity of our example; if you're running using the same on a single machine, ensure that it has enough RAM and CPU on the host machine.
cassandra.yaml file with key configuration options for these two new nodes will look as follows:
cassandra.yaml file for node 5 with some key configuration parameters is shown in the following image. Here, both the nodes are using node 2 with the IP address
127.0.0.2 as the seed node:
In the preceding ...
