Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4565) TTL columns with older then gcgrace do not need to flush
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 01:49:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4565?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13453637#comment-13453637
] 

Edward Capriolo commented on CASSANDRA-4565:
--------------------------------------------

I was originally thinking that total columns would have less of a chance of a lost delete
issue. Since if they exist they will self delete. Not sure how this will work if a total column
with a shorter total shadows a title column with a longer ttl. Then lost update might be an
issue.

> With memcache many people are willing to sacrifice durability for performance. Cassandra
has a TimeToLive feature that can be used in caching scenarios with low values for gc_grace_seconds.
However from a code dive it seems that cassandra will always write TTL to disk, even those
that are beyond gc_grace_seconds. If a use case very large memtables,small ttl, and small
gc_grace it is possible that flushing these columns to disk can be skipped entirely in some
scenarios.
