Subject manually removing sstable
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2013 12:09:35 GMT

I think I remember reading that if you have sstables that you know contain
only data that whose ttl has expired, it's safe to remove them manually by
stopping c*, removing the *-Data.db files and then starting up c* again. is
this correct?

we have a cluster where everything is written with a ttl, and sometimes c*
needs to compact over a 100 gb of sstables where we know ever has expired,
and we'd rather just manually get rid of those.
