Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll avoid using that feature then. We 
have a fairly complicated and well thought out compaction management 
running but since we're moving into needing near 100% uptime we don't 
have the window for tables to be tied up compacting. We're working on a 
solution to chunk our data up over multiple tables so it's more 
manageable. However, we'll be stuck with the large table until it done 
aging off a year from now.

I'll look into the tiered compactions but we have a spatio-temporal key 
(GeoMesa) and we may need to write an extension to the
