"compact" and "cleanup" are two different operations. "compact" does a
major compaction. "cleanup" is a superset of "compact" which does a
major compaction and also checks whether the node is responsible for
this data and does not write it to the new sstable if it isn't. If you
resize your cluster but never run a "cleanup", you will not reclaim
space used by keys on the node(s) being split.

        else if (cmdName.equals("cleanup"))
        else if (cmdName.equals("compact"))
