To trigger LCS you need to write to this CF and wait when new sstable flushes. I can’t find
any other way to start LCS.

Subject: Is the updating compaction strategy from 'sized tiered' to 'leveled' automatic or
need to be done manually? [heur]

Hi there,

I am updating compaction strategy from 'sized tiered' to 'leveled' and from
it is said:
When updating an existing column family, reads and writes can continue as usual while leveling
of existing sstables is performed in the background.

But I still see many old sstables with very large size and an old file date. So I am wondering
is the updating of compaction done automatically? If yes, is there an estimate of time it
will take? If not, what's the steps to do it manually?
I've googled a lot but can't find something helpful. Thanks for any feedbacks and any help
is of great appreciation.
