I have 5 nodes with replication factor 5. This means the node has a range of partitions. if I run nodetool repair --full on node 1, will all my nodes get repaired or will only node 1 get repaired?

1 Answer 1


In this instance where each node holds a full copy of the data, nodetool repair will repair all token ranges which means that data will be synchronised across all 5 nodes. Cheers!
