Subject Re: moving data from single node cassandra
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2011 01:10:49 GMT
| data_file_directories makes it seem as though cassandra can use more than one location for
sstable storage. Does anyone know how it splits up the data between partitions? I am trying
to plan for just about every worst case scenario I can right now, and I want to know if I
can change the config to open up some secondary storage for a compaction if needed.
