19. Read Repair

Let's learn about read repair and its usage.


In Distributed Systems, where data is replicated across multiple nodes, some nodes can end up having stale data. Imagine a scenario where a node failed to receive a write or update request because it was down or there was a network partition. How do we ensure that the node gets the latest version of the data when it is healthy again?


Repair stale data during the read operation, since at that point, we can read data from multiple nodes to perform a comparison and find nodes that have stale data
