A cluster object describes the configuration of the Cassandra cluster and is used to construct a session instance. Unlike other DataStax drivers the cluster object does not maintain the control connection.
Creates a new cluster.
cass_cluster_free( cluster )
Frees a cluster instance.
cass_cluster_set_contact_points( cluster, contact_points )
Sets/Appends contact points. This MUST be set. The first call sets the contact points and any subsequent calls appends additional contact points. Passing an empty string will clear the contact points. White space is striped from the contact points.
Examples: “127.0.0.1” “127.0.0.1,127.0.0.2”, “server1.domain.com”
cass_cluster_set_contact_points_n( cluster, contact_points, contact_points_length )
CassCluster::cass_cluster_set_contact_points, but with lengths for string parameters.
cass_cluster_set_port( cluster, port )
Sets the port.
cass_cluster_set_ssl( cluster, ssl )
Sets the SSL context and enables SSL.
cass_cluster_set_protocol_version( cluster, protocol_version )
Sets the protocol version. This will automatically downgrade if to protocol version 1.
cass_cluster_set_num_threads_io( cluster, num_threads )
Sets the number of IO threads. This is the number of threads that will handle query requests.
cass_cluster_set_queue_size_io( cluster, queue_size )

cass_cluster_set_reconnect_wait_time( cluster, wait_time )
Sets the amount of time to wait before attempting to reconnect.
Default: 2000 milliseconds
cass_cluster_set_max_concurrent_creation( cluster, num_connections )
Sets the maximum number of connections that will be created concurrently. Connections are created when the current connections are unable to keep up with request throughput.
cass_cluster_set_max_concurrent_requests_threshold( cluster, num_requests )
Sets the threshold for the maximum number of concurrent requests in-flight on a connection before creating a new connection. The number of new connections created will not exceed max_connections_per_host.
cass_cluster_set_max_requests_per_flush( cluster, num_requests )
Sets the maximum number of requests processed by an IO worker per flush.
cass_cluster_set_write_bytes_high_water_mark( cluster, num_bytes )
Sets the high water mark for the number of bytes outstanding on a connection. Disables writes to a connection if the number of bytes queued exceed this value.
Default: 64 KB
cass_cluster_set_write_bytes_low_water_mark( cluster, num_bytes )
Sets the low water mark for number of bytes outstanding on a connection. After exceeding high water mark bytes, writes will only resume once the number of bytes fall below this value.
Default: 32 KB
cass_cluster_set_pending_requests_high_water_mark( cluster, num_requests )
Sets the high water mark for the number of requests queued waiting for a connection in a connection pool. Disables writes to a host on an IO worker if the number of requests queued exceed this value.
Default: 128 * max_connections_per_host
cass_cluster_set_pending_requests_low_water_mark( cluster, num_requests )
Sets the low water mark for the number of requests queued waiting for a connection in a connection pool. After exceeding high water mark requests, writes to a host will only resume once the number of requests fall below this value.
Default: 64 * max_connections_per_host
cass_cluster_set_connect_timeout( cluster, timeout_ms )
Sets the timeout for connecting to a node.
Default: 5000 milliseconds
cass_cluster_set_request_timeout( cluster, timeout_ms )
Sets the timeout for waiting for a response from a node.
Default: 12000 milliseconds
cass_cluster_set_credentials( cluster, username, password )
Sets credentials for plain text authentication.
cass_cluster_set_credentials_n( cluster, username, username_length, password, password_length )
CassCluster::cass_cluster_set_credentials, but with lengths for string parameters.
cass_cluster_set_load_balance_round_robin( cluster )
Configures the cluster to use round-robin load balancing.
The driver discovers all nodes in a cluster and cycles through them per request. All are considered ‘local’.
cass_cluster_set_load_balance_dc_aware( cluster, local_dc, used_hosts_per_remote_dc, allow_remote_dcs_for_local_cl )
Configures the cluster to use DC-aware load balancing. For each query, all live nodes in a primary ‘local’ DC are tried first, followed by any node from other DCs.
Note: This is the default, and does not need to be called unless switching an existing from another policy or changing settings. Without further configuration, a default local_dc is chosen from the first connected contact point, and no remote hosts are considered in query plans. If relying on this mechanism, be sure to use only contact points from the local DC.
cass_cluster_set_load_balance_dc_aware_n( cluster, local_dc, local_dc_length, used_hosts_per_remote_dc, allow_remote_dcs_for_local_cl )
CassCluster::cass_cluster_set_load_balance_dc_aware, but with lengths for string parameters.
cass_cluster_set_token_aware_routing( cluster, enabled )
Configures the cluster to use token-aware request routing or not.
Important: Token-aware routing depends on keyspace information. For this reason enabling token-aware routing will also enable the usage of schema metadata.
Default: cass_true (enabled).
This routing policy composes the base routing policy, routing requests first to replicas on nodes considered ‘local’ by the base load balancing policy.
cass_cluster_set_latency_aware_routing( cluster, enabled )
Configures the cluster to use latency-aware request routing or not.
Default: cass_false (disabled).
This routing policy is a top-level routing policy. It uses the base routing policy to determine locality (dc-aware) and/or placement (token-aware) before considering the latency.
cass_cluster_set_latency_aware_routing_settings( cluster, exclusion_threshold, scale_ms, retry_period_ms, update_rate_ms, min_measured )
Configures the settings for latency-aware request routing.
- exclusion_threshold: 2.0
- scale_ms: 100 milliseconds
- retry_period_ms: 10,000 milliseconds (10 seconds)
- update_rate_ms: 100 milliseconds
- min_measured: 50
cass_cluster_set_tcp_nodelay( cluster, enabled )
Enable/Disable Nagel’s algorithm on connections.
Default: cass_true (disables Nagel’s algorithm).
cass_cluster_set_tcp_keepalive( cluster, enabled, delay_secs )
Enable/Disable TCP keep-alive
Default: cass_false (disabled).
cass_cluster_set_timestamp_gen( cluster, timestamp_gen )
Sets the timestamp generator used to assign timestamps to all requests unless overridden by setting the timestamp on a statement or a batch.
Default: server-side timestamp generator.
cass_cluster_set_connection_heartbeat_interval( cluster, interval_secs )
Sets the amount of time between heartbeat messages and controls the amount of time the connection must be idle before sending heartbeat messages. This is useful for preventing intermediate network devices from dropping connections.
Default: 30 seconds
cass_cluster_set_connection_idle_timeout( cluster, timeout_secs )
Sets the amount of time a connection is allowed to be without a successful hearbeat response before being terminated and scheduled for reconnection.
Default: 60 seconds
cass_cluster_set_retry_policy( cluster, retry_policy )
Sets the retry policy used for all requests unless overridden by setting a retry policy on a statement or a batch.
Default: The same policy as would be created by the function:
CassRetryPolicy::cass_retry_policy_default_new. This policy will retry on a read timeout if there was enough replicas, but no data present, on a write timeout if a logged batch request failed to write the batch log, and on a unavailable error it retries using a new host. In all other cases the default policy will return an error.
cass_cluster_set_use_schema( cluster, enabled )
Enable/Disable retrieving and updating schema metadata. If disabled this is allows the driver to skip over retrieving and updating schema metadata, but it also disables the usage of token-aware routing and
CassSession::cass_session_get_schema will always return an empty object. This can be useful for reducing the startup overhead of short-lived sessions.
Default: cass_true (enabled).
