The setup function in cqlengine.connection records the Cassandra servers to connect to. If there is a problem with one of the servers, cqlengine will try to connect to each of the other connections before failing.

  • hosts (list) – list of hosts, strings in the <hostname>:<port>, or just <hostname>
  • default_keyspace (str) – keyspace to default to
  • consistency (int) – the consistency level of the connection, defaults to ‘ONE’
