I would guess more aggressive compaction settings, did you update rows or insert some twice?
If you run major compaction a couple times on the 0.8.1 cluster does the data size get smaller?

You can use the "describe" command to check if compression got turned on.

Subject: 0.8.1 Vs 1.0.7


I ran some data import tests for cassandra 0.8.1 and 1.0.7. The results were a little bit

0.8.1, SimpleStrategy, Rep_Factor=3,QUORUM Writes, RP, SimpleSnitch

XXX.XXX.XXX.A  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  140.61 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.B  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  139.92 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.C  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  138.81 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.D  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  139.78 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.E  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  137.44 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.F  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  138.48 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.G  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  140.52 GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.H  datacenter1 rack1       Up     Normal  145.24 GB       12.50%

1.0.7, NTS, Rep_Factor{DC1:3, DC2:2}, LOCAL_QUORUM writes, RP [DC2 m/c yet to join ring],

XXX.XXX.XXX.A  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   48.72  GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.B  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   51.23  GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.C  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   52.4    GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.D  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   49.64  GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.E  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   48.5    GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.F  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal    53.38  GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.G  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   51.11  GB       12.50%
XXX.XXX.XXX.H  DC1 RAC1       Up     Normal   53.36  GB       12.50%

There seems to be 3X savings in size for the same dataset running 1.0.7. I have not enabled
compression for any of the CFs. Will it be enabled by default when creating a new CF in 1.0.7?
cassandra.yaml is also mostly identical.

Thanks and Regards,
