Subject Re: Is it possible to control the sstable file size in incremental backup or snapshot
Date Sat, 21 Sep 2013 02:07:14 GMT
Snapshot just creates a hard link to all your sstables. There is no control
on the size. That you can control if you are on level compaction. Dont know
about  Size tiered.
