             Summary: Improve the way we pick L0 compaction candidates
                 Key: CASSANDRA-5936
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-5936
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Marcus Eriksson
            Assignee: Marcus Eriksson


We could improve the way we pick compaction candidates in level 0 in LCS.

The most common way for us to get behind on compaction is after repairs, we should exploit
the fact that the streamed sstables are most often very narrow in range since the other nodes
in the ring will have a similar sstable-range-distribution. We should in theory be able to
do 10 concurrent compactions involving L1 - ie, partition L0 in buckets defined by the sstables
in L1 to only keep one L1 SSTable busy for every compaction (be it L1 to L2 or L0 to L1).

we will need some heuristics on when to select candidates from the buckets and when to do
it the old way (since L0 sstables can span several L1 sstables)
