Subject Is there guidance about compaction thresholds and setting minthreshold to 2?
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 15:36:07 GMT
The default minthreshold for compactions is 4:
http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.1/references/nodetool#nodetool-setcompactionthreshold

Is there a reason that this value is not "2", the lowest possible value?
 If we change this to 2 what should we expect to see? Should we see less
growth in storage load and fewer files to seek through when reading but at
the cost of higher CPU usage?


Thanks,

Peter
