Subject Cleanup and old files
Date Mon, 30 Dec 2013 00:28:35 GMT
I am currently running a cluster with 1.2.8.  One of my larger column
families on one of my nodes has keyspace-tablename-ic-####-Data.db with a
modify date in August.

Since august we have added several nodes (with vnodes), with the same
number of vnodes as all the existing nodes.

As a result, (we've since gone from 15 to 21 nodes), then ~32% of my data
of the original 15 nodes should have been essentially balanced out to the 6
new nodes.  (1/15 + 1/16 + .... 1/21).

When I run a cleanup, however, the old data files never get updated, and I
can't believe that they all should have remained the same.

The only recently updated files in that data directory are secondary index
sstable files.  Am I doing something wrong here?  Am I thinking about this
