Subject Re: two times more regions after update
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2009 16:52:14 GMT
While you set the max versions to 1, that is only enforced on major 

So re-inserting all the data will actually mean you have double the data 
for some period of time.  After a certain amount of time, a major 
compaction will occur in the background, and at that point only 1 
version would remain.

When that happened, you would still be left with 84 regions, but they'd 
be half the size that they were after you re-inserted the data.

Make sense?
