Subject Re: Does Major Compaction work on dropped CFs? Doesn't seem so.
Date Tue, 25 Jan 2011 00:42:02 GMT

OK, so I'm looking at this page:

This looks promising:
"A compaction marker is also added to obsolete sstables so they can be
deleted on startup if the server does not perform a GC before being

So it would seem that if I restart the server, the obsoleted data should be
GCd out of existence, don't you think? But it's not happening. I brought
down one node, restarted it and the old data is still there.
