Subject Removes increasing disk space usage in Cassandra?
Date Thu, 03 Dec 2009 23:18:49 GMT
Hi all,

I ran a test where I inserted about 1.2 Gigabytes worth of data into
each node of a 4 node cluster.
I ran a script that first calls a get on each column inserted followed
by a remove. Since I was basically removing every entry
I inserted before, I expected that the disk space occupied by the
nodes will go down and eventually become 0. The disk space
actually goes up when I do the bulk removes to about 1.8 gigs per
node. Am I missing something here?

Thanks a lot for your help
