Subject Re: Memtables stored in which location
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2011 08:14:16 GMT
SSTable is stored on disk not memtable.

Memtable is memory representation of data, which is on flush to create
SSTable on disk.

This is the location where SSTable is stored

Where as Commitlog which is back up (log) for memtable replaying store in

Once the all memtable is flushed to disk, new commit log segment is created.
