Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-11179) Parallel cleanup can lead to disk space exhaustion
Date Wed, 17 Feb 2016 23:24:18 GMT
Tyler Hobbs created CASSANDRA-11179:

             Summary: Parallel cleanup can lead to disk space exhaustion
                 Key: CASSANDRA-11179
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Compaction, Tools
            Reporter: Tyler Hobbs

In CASSANDRA-5366, we made cleanup (among other things) run in parallel across multiple sstables.
 There have been reports on IRC of this leading to disk space exhaustion, because multiple
sstables are (almost entirely) rewritten at the same time.  This seems particularly problematic
because cleanup is frequently run after a cluster is expanded due to low disk space.

I'm not really familiar with how we perform free disk space checks now, but it sounds like
we can make some improvements here.  It would be good to reduce the concurrency of cleanup
operations if there isn't enough free disk space to support this.
