Subject How can I switch from multiple disks to a single disk?
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2013 17:14:25 GMT
Because I ran out of space when shuffling, I was forced to add multiple
disks on my Cassandra nodes.

When I finish compacting, cleaning up, and repairing, I'd like to remove
them and return to one disk per node.

What is the procedure to make the switch?
Can I just kill cassandra, move the data from one disk to the other, remove
the configuration for the second disk, and re-start cassandra?

I assume files will not have the same name and thus not be overwritten, is
this the case? Does it pick it up just like that?
