Restarting may be a temporary workaround but cant be a permanent solution. After some days,
the problem will come back again.

We are facing an issue where Cassandra has open file handles for deleted sstable files. These
open file handles keep on increasing with time and eventually lead to disk crisis. This is
visible via lsof command. 
There are no Exceptions in logs.We are suspecting a race condition where compactions/repairs
and reads are done on same sstable. I have gone through few JIRAs but somehow not able to
coorelate the issue with those tickets. 
We are using 2.0.14. OS is Red Hat Linux.
Any suggestions?
