Seed Node

jean paul
Hello All,

Please,i have a question a bout the seed node.. as i read it is the bootstrap node, each new node joins the seed node
  that's it?
if it leaves the cluster, how can a new node joins the rest of the group ?

Thanks a lot for answer.
Best Regards.

What "a seed" is within Cassandra is apparently formally undefined.

To answer your question, ones just picks a random other node and uses that as the seed. The only thing a new node is doing from the seed is discovering the rest of the cluster.

For more detail (and some handwaving) :
