New port databases/cassandra3 shar archive

New port for Cassandra 3.11.2

Apache Cassandra is a free and open-source distributed database.
It is a Java-based, highly scalable, eventually consistent, wide
column store.
Comment 1 Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2018-03-06 05:36:29 UTC
For the record, cassandra has been in the tree, 2 versions have been deleted before:
> $ grep cassandra MOVED
> databases/cassandra||2016-03-29|Has expired: 1.2.x has reached EOL, upgrade to a supported version of Cassandra
> databases/cassandra2||2017-11-12|Has expired: Broken for more than 6 months

Updated shar archive

Updated shar archive fixes external lib issues.
Comment 3 Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2018-03-10 07:07:39 UTC
Hi Angelo,

cassandra2 had the rc script (in files/cassandra.in).
Could you please add one too?

Updated shar with rc script


Please see the new shar, including rc script.

(In reply to Angelo Polo from comment #4)

Thank you Angelo,

I've tried the port, unfortunately it fails to build in poudriere:

     [echo] Downloading Maven ANT Tasks...
      [get] Getting: http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/maven-ant-tasks/2.1.3/maven-ant-tasks-2.1.3.jar
      [get] To: /wrkdirs/usr/ports/kdp/cassandra3/work/apache-cassandra-3.11.2-src/build/maven-ant-tasks-2.1.3.jar
      [get] Error getting http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/maven-ant-tasks/2.1.3/maven-ant-tasks-2.1.3.jar to /wrkdirs/usr/ports/kdp/cassandra3/work/apache-cassandra-3.11.2-src/build/maven-ant-tasks-2.1.3.jar

/wrkdirs/usr/ports/kdp/cassandra3/work/apache-cassandra-3.11.2-src/build.xml:296: java.net.SocketException: Permission denied (connect failed)

AFAIK ports should NEVER download anything during build process. All downloads must be happening on fetch stage and be checked with distfiles.
We should either do all downloads before build, or consider using tarball with prebuild binary distribution which is available on official download page.
Comment 7 Angelo Polo 2018-06-26 13:27:01 UTC
Thanks Sergey,

Taking a look into it.

Updated shar

Uses a pre-assembled Maven repository. Removed duplicate copies of tools/bin scripts from staging.
Comment 9 Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2018-07-17 17:24:47 UTC
Ok, thanks, I will take a look.
Comment 10 Angelo Polo 2018-08-13 22:11:49 UTC
If anyone wants to use or test the port, for now you can manually download the Maven repository "apache-cassandra-3.11.2-repo.tar.gz" to /usr/ports/distfiles from here:

Comment 11 Lapo Luchini 2018-08-29 15:20:29 UTC
Strangely enough I could add the file to my GDrive, but when I attempt download it stucks indefinitely or fails with a 409 error.
Comment 12 Lapo Luchini 2018-08-29 15:24:28 UTC
…and of course I tried 4 times, I wrote that comment, then I tried again "for the sake of it" and it finally worked perfectly.
Comment 13 Lapo Luchini 2018-08-29 16:15:17 UTC
BTW: the rc.d uses a "cassandra" user by default, but it's not created during install.

Comment 17 Angelo Polo 2018-08-29 22:07:52 UTC
Thanks Lapo, updated Makefile now creates the cassandra user and group during install.
Comment 18 Lapo Luchini 2018-08-30 12:51:54 UTC
Would also be nice to change "/var/lib/cassandra" to "/var/db/cassandra" (and uncomment those lines) in $PREFIX/etc/cassandra/cassandra.yaml to have the default database directory similar to other Ports. (/var/db/mysql, /var/db/mongodb, /var/db/pgsql)

Also logs should (probably) be adapted to FreeBSD hierarchy, something like /var/log/cassandra (?)
Can bechanged in $PREFIX/etc/cassandra/logback.xml

PS: sorry about trickling comments, I'm writing as I'm interested in it as a user and noticing one thing at a time.
Comment 19 Angelo Polo 2018-08-31 12:37:00 UTC
These are good ideas. I'll update this too.
Comment 20 Angelo Polo 2018-09-07 23:11:17 UTC

Updated shar

Default data and log directories set.
Comment 21 Lapo Luchini 2018-09-14 07:41:28 UTC
Oh, nice, changing -Dcassandra.logdir is better than logback.xml as I did locally.
Only bug I can notice right now (and I consider it marginal) is that the cqlsh client doesn't seem to find readline and does not allow line editing (e.g. pressing left arrow and right arrow prints "^[[D^[[C").
I hope this gets committed soon.
Comment 22 Lapo Luchini 2018-09-21 08:44:49 UTC
Meanwhile, 3.11.3 is out. =)
Comment 23 Lapo Luchini 2018-09-24 09:28:08 UTC
PS: the readline bug I mentioned in comment 21 was produced by an old libreadline I had still in /lib/, it works perfectly.

Don't pack the broken ohc libs.
Comment 25 Angelo Polo 2018-09-24 20:01:09 UTC
To use the (normally default) off-heap row cache, you can build this pending port:

Then link the following two files from $JAVASHAREDIR/classes into $JAVASHAREDIR/cassandra/lib:

And set:
row_cache_class_name: org.apache.cassandra.cache.OHCProvider

When the OHC port gets committed I will update the Cassandra port to depend on it and reinstate the default row cache.

Update to Cassandra 3.11.3.

Comment 27 Lapo Luchini 2018-10-24 14:14:23 UTC
Thanks! I'm deploying 3.11.3 and seems to be working fine.
