What compaction strategy are you using?

Hi there,

I am using 2.0.10 and my Cassandra node has 6 disks and I configured 6 data directories in
cassandra.yaml. But the data was not evenly stored on these 6 disks:

disk1  67%   used
disk2  100% used
disk3  100% used
disk4  76%   used
disk5  69%   used
disk6  81%   used


1. Is there a way to make the data evenly spread on disks?
2. I set 'disk_failure_policy: best_effort', so when the disk is full, will it serve reading
or just stop working at all?
3. Any other suggestions?
