Nodetool refresh v/s sstableloader
Hi Cassandra users, Cassandra dev,
When recovering using SSTables from a snapshot, I want to know what are the
key differences between using:
1. Nodetool refresh and,
Does nodetool refresh have restrictions that need to be met?
Does nodetool refresh work even if there is a change in the topology
between the source cluster and the destination cluster? Does it work if the
token ranges don't match between the source cluster and the destination
cluster? Does it work when an old SSTable in the snapshot has a dropped
column that is not part of the current schema?
I appreciate any help in advance.
