Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CASSANDRA-1537) Add option (on CF) to remove expired column on minor compactions
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2011 20:01:31 GMT


Jonathan Ellis resolved CASSANDRA-1537.

       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.1)
         Assignee:     (was: Sylvain Lebresne)

This doesn't seem urgent or useful enough to justify adding more options and complexity to
the TTL code.

> In some use cases, you can safely remove the tombstones of an expired column.
> In theory, this is true in each case where you know that you will never update a column

> using a ttl strictly lesser that the one of the old column.
> This will be the case for instance if you always use the same ttl on all the columns
of a CF
> (say you use the CF for a long term persistent cache).
> I propose adding an option (by CF) that says 'always remove tombstone of expired columns
> for that CF'.
