Thank You!

Could the lack of routine repair be why nodetool ring reports: node(1) Load -> 78.24 MB and node(2) Load -> 67.21 MB? The load span between the two nodes has been increasing ever so slowly...

I have been playing around with Cassandra for a few months now. Starting to explore more of the routine maintenance and backup strategies and I have a general question about nodetool repair. After reading the following page: it has occurred to me that for these past few months I have NOT DONE any cleanup or repair commands on a test 2-node cluster (and their has been quite a few deletes, writes, etc.).

For some reason I was under the assumption that Cassandra handled the tombstone records from deletes automatically? Should I still run nodetool repair and if so, what about old deletes which occurred months ago?

Thank You!
