I did try that. I didn't see it go any faster. The cpu load was lower,
which I assumed meant fewer bytes/sec being compressed
(SnappyCompressor). I didn't see multiple compactions in parallel.
Nodetool compactionstats behaved strange and instead of showing
individual compactions with a %-complete it showed a running count of
total bytes compacted. (Darn, I don't have the output of that anymore in
my terminal buffer.) It just didn't look good to me. Are you positive
that it is faster with leveled compaction? I don't understand why I
don't get multiple concurrent compactions running, that's what would
make the biggest performance difference. Is the compaction parallelism
perhaps only across multiple CFs? That would explain what I see.
