I forgot to mention that if your insertion speed is simply
legitimately faster than compaction, but you have left-over idle CPU
on the system, then currently as far as I know you're out of luck. If
cassandra gets concurrent compaction support in the future it would be
able to sustain a higher write rate in cases where it is currently
bottlenecking on the sequential nature of compaction.
