Subject Scalability question
Date Sun, 14 Aug 2011 17:32:30 GMT
Hi,

As on-disk SSTables become bigger and bigger because more data is added in
the ring, compactions take longer and longer because each file is becoming
bigger.
Isn't there a time where compacting will take so long that compaction just
can't keep up with the amount of data ? It looks to me like that's
independent from the write throughput, just a question of how long it takes.

What am I missing ?

Thanks
Philippe
