Subject Rules for Major Compaction
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2012 14:51:40 GMT
DataStax recommends not to run major compactions. Edward Capriolo's
Cassandra High Performance book suggests that major compaction is a good
thing. And should be run on a regular basis. Are there any ground rules
about running major compactions? For example, if you have write-once kind
of data that is never updated  then it probably makes sense to not run
major compaction. But if you have data which can be deleted or overwritten
does it make sense to run major compaction on a regular basis?
