Subject Re: Column Slice Query performance after deletions

What is your gc_grace set to? Sounds like as the number of tombstones records increase your
performance decreases. (Which I would expect)

I have a daily maintenance of my cluster where I truncate this column family. Because its
data doesnt need to be kept more than a day.
Since all the regular operations on it finishes around 4 hours before finishing the day. I
regurlarly run a truncate on it followed by a repair at the end of the day.

And every day, when the operations are started(when are only few deleted columns), the performance
looks pretty well.
Unfortunately it is degraded along the day.

When is the last time you did a cleanup on the cf?

between 10k ~ 200k). And I do have also thousands of rows, not much more than 15k.

it as 100w/sec in the column family.

reading it, the column is marked for deletion in order to keep it out from the next query
on this row.

column slice query ) are taking more time to be performed. Even if there are only few columns,
lower than 100.

the time spent for a query.
