Reporting bugs

If you encounter a problem with Cassandra, the first places to ask for help are the user mailing list and the #cassandra Slack channel.

If, after having asked for help, you suspect that you have found a bug in Cassandra, you should report it by opening a ticket through the Apache Cassandra JIRA tracking system. Please provide as much detail as you can on your problem. Don't forget to indicate which version of Cassandra you are running and on which environment.
