Subject Tuning a column family for archival
Date Thu, 11 Aug 2011 01:18:24 GMT
I have a column family that I'm using to archive records.  They're mostly
kept around for historical purposes.  Aside from that, they're mostly
considered deleted.  It's probably going to be very rare that anyone reads
from this table *ever*.  I don't really even write to it that much.

Does anyone have advice for me as far as how (or if) I should tune this
table with that in mind?  My concern is less speeding up access to this
table than it is making sure that it doesn't impact the performance of any
other column families in any way.

Here's the data from nodetool cfstat (although this table was just created a
few days ago):
