Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6666) Avoid accumulating tombstones after partial hint replay
Date Sun, 28 Sep 2014 15:33:35 GMT


Donald Smith commented on CASSANDRA-6666:

I know this is moot because of the redesign of hints, but I want to understand this. OK, if
a hint was successfully delivered, then I can see how a tombstone would be useful for causing
deletion of *older* instances in other sstables.  But if a hint timed-out (tombstone), then
any older instance will also have timed out (presumably). So, could tombstones be deleted
in that case (timeout)?  Perhaps a timed out cell IS a tombstone, but my point is: I don't
see why they need to take up space.
