Subject Re: Tuning cassandra (compactions overall)

I already had this kind of trouble while repairing a month ago. I have
problems that I am the only one to have. I guess I have something
wrong either in the configuration of my nodes or in my data that makes
them wrong after a restart/repair.

I am planning to try deploying an EC2 cluster with datastax AMI to be
sure of the integrity of the server. I will put my data into it and
try all maintenance reparation (repair, cleanup, rolling restart and
so on).

If you are interested in my start logs, here they are :

Thanks for your help Aaron.
