I discovered problem with this advice.

If i do nodetool drain before killing node nodetool returns just after flush and stuff disabling
is finished on cassandra node. But flush can trigger possible compaction and if you kill node
after drain it will interrupt compaction in progress resulting in wasted disk space. I am
not sure if tmp files are cleaned on cassandra start.
