Subject nodetool cleanup - results in more disk use?
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2011 14:08:57 GMT
I ran node cleanup on a node in my cluster and discovered the disk usage went from 3.3 GB to
5.4 GB.  Why is this?

I thought cleanup just removed hinted handoff information.   I read that *during* cleanup
extra disk space will be used similar to a compaction.  But I was expecting the disk usage
to go back down when it finished.

I hope cleanup doesn't trigger a major compaction.  I'd rather not run major compactions because
it means future minor compactions will take longer and use more CPU and disk.
