No, I am not using compression.
Are you using compression ?I remember some issues with compression and reported load, cannot remember the details.CheersOn 17/02/2012, at 3:27 AM, Bill Au wrote:I am running 1.0.2 with the default tiered compaction. After running a "nodetool compact", I noticed that on about half of the machines in my cluster, both "nodetool ring" and "nodetool info" report that the load is actually higher than before when I expect it to be lower. It is almost twice as much as before. I did a du command on the data directory and found the the actual disk usage is only about half of what's being reported by nodetool. Since I am running 1.0.2, there are no compacted sstables waiting to be removed. I manually trigger a full GC in the JVM but that made no difference. When I restarted Cassandra, nodetool once again report the correct load.
Is this a known problem?
