Subject Cassanrda 1.1.11 compression: how to tell if it works ?
Date Tue, 07 May 2013 18:35:56 GMT
I have a column family with really wide rows set to use Snappy like this:

compression_options = {'sstable_compression' : 

My understanding is that if a file is compressed I should not be able 
to use "strings" command to view its contents. But it seems like I can 
view the contents like this:

strings *-Data.db 

At what point does compression start ? How can I confirm it is working ?
