Subject when do snapshots go away?
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2011 00:53:57 GMT
Hi all,

When I drop a column family, it creates a snapshot. When does the snapshot go away and free
up the disk space? I was able to run nodetool clearsnapshot to get rid of them, but will they
go away themselves? (Also, is there a purpose to keeping a snapshot around?)
