Subject Re: Compaction issues

When we made a similar move, for an unknown reason (I didn't hear any feedback from the list
when I asked why this might be), compaction didn't start after we moved from SizedTiered to
leveled compaction until I ran "nodetool compact <keyspace> <column-family-converted-to-lcs>".

The thread is here:

I've also seen other individuals on this list state that those pending compaction stats didn't
move unless the node was restarted.  Compaction started to run several minutes after restart.
