Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9327) Tombstones are not being cleared up
Date Thu, 07 May 2015 18:49:01 GMT
srinivasu gottipati created CASSANDRA-9327:

             Summary: Tombstones are not being cleared up
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9327
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: srinivasu gottipati
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.0.14

We deleted part of data from one of column families. After that we ran repair, followed by
reducing gc_grace_seconds to have tombstones space to be reclaimed. After this, we kept the
compaction enabled to reclaim this space upon passing gc_grace_seconds. We have done this
while back and for sure gc_grace_seconds has elapsed.

Currently, when we run queries against this column family, we are seeing lot of tombstone
errors like below:
WARN [ReadStage:1113] 2015-05-06 17:48:22,556 (line 231) Read 19 live
and 1140 tombstoned cells in YYY (see tombstone_warn_threshold). 10001 columns was requested,
slices=[-], delInfo={deletedAt=-9223372036854775808, localDeletion=2147483647} 

The localDeletion reported above is time in future (year:2038, I believe it is the default
Integer.MAX_VALUE), and I believe this could be the reason it is not being reclaimed.

May I know, how do we purge this tombstones and also, what could have set this date to time
in future?
