How many nodes do you have? You should be able to run a rolling compaction around the ring,
one node at a time to minimize impact. If one node is too big an impact, maybe you should
have a bigger cluster? If you are on EC2, try running more but smaller instances.

Subject: Reclaim deleted rows space

Lets assume I have:
* single 100GB SSTable file
* min compaction threshold is set to 2

If I delete rows which are located in this file. Is the only way to "clean" the deleted rows
is by inserting another 100GB of data or by triggering a painful major compaction?
