Subject Re: nodetool repair and compact

You’ll find the answers to your questions (and quite a bit more) in this blog post from my
coworker: <>

Repair doesn’t clean up tombstones, they’re only removed through compaction.  I advise
taking care with nodetool compact, most of the time it’s not a great idea for a variety
of reasons.  Check out the above post, if you still have questions, ask away.
