Subject Deleting "old" SSTables
Date Tue, 22 Mar 2011 12:30:26 GMT
According to the Wiki Page on compaction:  once compaction is finished, the old SSTable files
may be deleted*

* http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/MemtableSSTable

I thought the old SSTables would be deleted automatically, but this wiki page got me thinking
otherwise.

Question is,  if it is true that old SSTables must be manually deleted, how can one safely
identify which SSTables can be deleted??

Jon
