Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-2697) "insufficient space to compact even the two smallest files, aborting"
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2011 07:47:47 GMT


Wojciech Meler commented on CASSANDRA-2697:

cassandra 0.8.0 has problems with manual compaction - in my case I get "insufficient space..."
message running 

  nodetool -h localhost -p 8080 compact mykeyspace fdb

while there is 66 fdb-*Data.db files, 6 fdb-*Compacted (a lot of files to compact) and only
7% of storage is used.

> When I explicitly send compaction command "compact" with nodetool, Cassandra outputs
error message above.  This message is shown even when there is only one file and no need for
compaction.  I believe this is confusing for users, and recommend that some alternative message
should be shown for such case.
