Subject: help turning compaction..hours of run to get 0% compaction....

I have a column family where I'm doing 500 inserts/sec for 12 hours or so at time.  At some
point my performance falls off a cliff due to time spent doing compactions.

I'm seeing row after row of logs saying that after 1 or 2 hours of compactiing it reduced
to 100% of 99% of the original.

I'm trying to understand what direction this data points me to in term of configuration change.

   a) increase my compaction_throughput_mb_per_sec because I'm falling behind (am I falling

   b) enable multi-threaded compaction?

Any help is appreciated.
