Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7550) Reduce tombstones
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2014 11:39:06 GMT


Benedict commented on CASSANDRA-7550:

This doesn't address the issue Aleksey raises: this flag needs to know if the record exists
on disk already (requiring a read-before-write), or if it exists _on another node in the cluster_,
which is a very hard problem

> If a record is still in Memtable, the Delete to that record shall be done in memory (Make
Compaction in memory), instead of placing a tombstone. This way it can save disk I/O and space
a lot for records with short lifecycle.
