> DateTieredCompaction works correctly when data is dumped for a certain time period in
short SSTables in time manner and then compacted together. However, if TTL is applied to the
data columns the DTCS fails to compact files correctly in timely manner. In our opinion the
problem is caused by two issues:
> A) During the DateTieredCompaction process the getFullyExpiredSStables is called twice.
First from the DateTieredCompactionStrategy class and second time from the CompactionTask
class. On the first time the target is to find out fully expired SStables that are not overlapping
with any non-fully expired SSTables. That works correctly. When the getFullyExpiredSSTables
is called second time from CompactionTask class the selection of fully expired SSTables is
modified compared to the first selection.
> B) The minimum timestamp of the new SSTables created by combining together fully expired
SSTable and files from the most interesting bucket is not correct.
> These two issues together cause problems for the DTCS process when it combines together
SSTables having overlap in time and TTL for the column. This is demonstrated by generating
test data first without compactions and showing the timely distribution of files. When the
compaction is enabled the DCTS combines files together, but the end result is not something
to be expected. This is demonstrated in the file motivation_jira.txt
