Subject Re: Large number of tombstones without delete or update
Date Thu, 24 Mar 2016 08:42:32 GMT
I can confirm that if I send JSON messages that always cover all schema fields the tombstone
issue is not reported by Cassandra.
So, is there a way to work around this issue other than to always populate every column of
the schema with every insert? That would be a pain in the backside, really.

Why would C* not warn about the excessive number of tombstones if queried from cqlsh?
