Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-9365) Prioritize compactions based on read activity
Date Tue, 12 May 2015 20:33:00 GMT
T Jake Luciani created CASSANDRA-9365:

             Summary: Prioritize compactions based on read activity
                 Key: CASSANDRA-9365
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: T Jake Luciani
             Fix For: 3.x

The main purpose of compaction is to keep reads fast by consolidating tables together to avoid
merging on read.

In a cluster with many tables we currently treat all pending compaction as equal.  When in
reality we may only be reading mainly from one of the tables.

Rather than FIFO we should prioritize access to the compactors based on read activity. 

It might also be nice to offer a nodetool command to kill specific compaction jobs in progress
that are not important under load.
