PS6, Line 103: isMergeLagging(
> I am strongly opposed to delay of flushes for the sake of merges. Not sure 
Both solutions (with or without flow control) are solution OK to me. But without flow control,
one consequence is that there could be more and more lagged disk components accumulated on
the disk along with the data ingestion. But eventually when the ingestion stops, the disk
components would be merged as expected. Any suggestions or comments from other reviewers?

However, for the correlated merge policy, the merge operation shouldn't be triggered by any
secondary index. The reason is that the secondary index disk component is usually much smaller
than the primary index disk component. If the merge request is sent by the secondary index
(for all indexes), then we would get much larger disk components for the primary, which breaks
the criteria for the merge policy. For example, if we set the MaxMergableComponentSize=128M
(this tells the merge policy that if any disk component is larger than this size, then never
merge it again), when the primary index disk component reaches this limit, the corresponding
secondary index disk component is only about 4-5M.
