Subject Question regarding tombstone removal on 0.6.4
Date Tue, 31 Aug 2010 20:04:18 GMT


I am running a three node cluster, everything works as expected.   After
running my application for ~60K iterations, I stopped the application,
then performed 

Nodetool flush on my Keyspace, the a nodetool compact, repeating this
for each node in the cluster.


Then I exported with sstabletojson on one of my CFs and  upon examining
the json - all the entries had the tombstone flag true.


This is correct, since all the application processes completed
correctly, and the entries should be removed.


Now for the question:  I understood that a nodetool compact would cause
the tombstone entries to be removed, is this true?
