I believe so.  There are no warnings on startup. 


So is there a preferred way to completely eliminate a column family?

Just to check, do you have JNA setup correctly? (You should see a couple of log messages about it shortly after startup.)  Truncate also performs a snapshot by default.

However, after all the work I issued a truncate on the old column family (the one replaced by this process) and I get an out of memory condition then.
