Subject memtable flush size with LCS
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2015 20:42:30 GMT
Hi all,

The docs indicate that memtables are triggered to flush when data in the
commitlog is expiring or based on memtable_flush_period_in_ms.

But LCS has a specified sstable size; when using LCS are memtables flushed
when they hit the desired sstable size (default 160MB) or could L0 sstables
be much larger than that?

Wondering because I have an overwrite workload where larger memtables would
be helpful, and if I need to increase my LCS sstable size in order to allow
for that.
