Subject Re: is there an upper limit of the size tier of stcs?

But what if the sstable file size of the largest tire is too large to
compact (e.g. no spare disk room to merge two huge sstables).
Not to mention that huge file is likely to bring troubles for some
file systems, and it's hard to backup them.

mean some tombstones at that last tier would not be removed? if not, then it's hard to imagine
to compact sstables in huge size, like 10gb; after all, the total size of sstables would definitelly
grow, so a huge sstable would be very likely possible, especially when the range of the keys
is wide.
