Can you please explain little more? You mean that if Level 1 file contains
range from 1-100 all the updates would still go in that file?

The link on leveldb says:

If all updates go in the same sstables then how do overlapping files get
generated. By overlapping I am assuming it means new or updated value for a
given key exists in multiple files?

Thanks for the explanation
