Compaction is not compression, it is merging of SSTables and tombstone
elimination.  If you are not doing many deletes or overwrites of
existing data, the compacted SSTable will be about the same size as
the total size of all the smaller SSTables that went into it.  It is
not clear to me how you ended up with 5000 SSTables (the *-data.db
files) of such small size if you have not disabled minor compactions.

Can you post your storage-conf.xml someplace (pastie or, for example)?
