Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7066) Simplify (and unify) cleanup of compaction leftovers
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2014 18:58:18 GMT

Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7066:
-------------------------------------

bq. We could be partway done renaming .tmp to live

Ah, because we could have multiple target sstables. Yes, sticky. I still think performing
some cleanup is a good thing, else we can end up with unnecessary data, but I don't think
the current setup is actually much better than dropping the tracking entirely. So long as
any failure is transient (not a bug that occurs predictably) it should be a relatively minor
concern. So let's go with that.

> Currently we manage a list of in-progress compactions in a system table, which we use
to cleanup incomplete compactions when we're done. The problem with this is that 1) it's a
bit clunky (and leaves us in positions where we can unnecessarily cleanup completed files,
or conversely not cleanup files that have been superceded); and 2) it's only used for a regular
compaction - no other compaction types are guarded in the same way, so can result in duplication
if we fail before deleting the replacements.
> I'd like to see each sstable store in its metadata its direct ancestors, and on startup
we simply delete any sstables that occur in the union of all ancestor sets. This way as soon
as we finish writing we're capable of cleaning up any leftovers, so we never get duplication.
It's also much easier to reason about.
