This little useful gem for creating local Cassandra test clusters was mentioned in Peter Bailis’s post Using Probabilistically Bounded Staleness in Cassandra 1.2.0, but I didn’t catch it until today when the DataStax guys blogged about it:
CCM (Cassandra Cluster Manager) is a tool written by Sylvain
Lebresne that creates multi-node cassandra clusters on the local
machine. It is great for quickly setting up clusters for development
and testing, and is the foundation that the cassandra distributed
tests (dtests) are built on. In this post I will give an
introduction to installing and using ccm.
