Subject Re: Question regarding secondary indices

Thanks Aaron for the response. I see those logs.
I had one more question. Looks like sstableloader takes only one directory
at a time. Is it possible to load multiple directories in one call.
Something like sstableloader /drive1/keyspace1 /drive2/keyspace1...
This way one can take adv of the speedup that you get from reading accross
multiple drives.
Or alternatively is it possible to run multiple instances of sstableloader
on the same machine concurrently?
Thanks!
