Subject Re: Encryption of exisiting data in Stripe Compaction
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2017 04:25:59 GMT
Hi
Very interesting case. Ya Stripe compaction does not need to under go a
major compaction if it already running under stripe compaction (reading the
docs I get this).
Since you have enable encryption at a later point of time you face this
issue I believe. The naive workaround I can think of is that do a alter
table with default compaction and it will do a major compaction and once
that is done again move back to Stripe compaction?  Will that work?

I would like to hear opinion of others who have experience with Strip
compaction.

Regards
Ram
