I did a nodetool rebuild and it seemed to clear out the pending compactions and didn't have the Exceptions in the log any more, so it fixed the issue intermittently. Not it is time to expedite the upgrade.

Hi,

I am experiencing this bug on our 1.1.6 cluster:


The pending compactions has been stuck on a constant value, so I suppose something is not compacting due to this. Is there a workaround beside upgrading? We are not ready to upgrade just yet.

Thanks,
