Unanswered: Testing Network failure using NuoDB and Jepsen
Some of you may know that Kyle Kingsbury of jepsen fame turned the baleful eye of his test framework against NuoDB 1.2. Specifically, the jepsen test attempts to quantify how a system with durability guarantees behaves in the presence of short-lived network partitions. Unfortunately, the jepsen tests ran into node instability issues while testing was underway. Since the big push for 2.0.x is for good multiple-datacenter support, we have been looking at this stuff pretty closely (in between all the other stuff we're working hard at here in the NuoDB volcano lair). The jepsen stuff is all open source and available on github. We've forked Mr. Kingsbury's repo and made some changes to resolve some of the issues that were cropping up.
