Cassandra does not respect hint window for CAS

      Description

      On Cassandra 3.0.9, it was observed that Cassandra continues to write hints even though a node remains down (and does not come up) for longer than the default 3 hour window.

       

      After doing "nodetool setlogginglevel org.apache.cassandra TRACE", we see the following log line in cassandra (debug) logs:
      StorageProxy.java:2625 - Adding hints for [/10.0.100.84]

       

      One possible code path seems to be:

      cas -> commitPaxos(proposal, consistencyForCommit, true); -> submitHint (in StorageProxy.java)

       

      The "true" parameter above explicitly states that a hint should be recorded and ignores the time window calculation performed by the shouldHint method invoked in other code paths. Is there a reason for this behavior?

       

      Edit: There are actually two stacks that seem to be producing hints, the "cas" and "syncWriteBatchedMutations" methods. I have posted them below.

       

      A third issue seems to be that Cassandra seems to reset the timer which counts how long a node has been down after a restart. Thus if Cassandra is restarted on a good node, it continues to accumulate hints for a down node over the next three hours.
