Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-9018) Dropped keyspace is not collected
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:21:53 GMT


Philip Thompson commented on CASSANDRA-9018:

So your expected behavior is not quite the actual expected behavior. When you call {{DROP
KEYSPACE}}, the data is snapshotted automatically. There are no tombstones or gcgs to deal
with. That snapshot will remain until you, the operator deletes it.

> As far as I understand when a keyspace is dropped, the data is marked as tombstone. We
expect that after the grace period (all tables are created with gc_grace_seconds=7200), this
data is automatically removed during the compaction process, which means that keyspace no
longer takes any space on disk.
> This is not happening (not after 2 or 24 hours). The log keeps saying "No files to compact
for user defined compaction", keyspace files remain on disk. It's not clear whether Cassandra
is still waiting for certain event, or decided not to collect the data.
> Is there any setting that I missed? Any clues to figure out from the log, what's the
current state.
