Subject Re: Any better solution to avoid TombstoneOverwhelmingException?
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2014 00:32:07 GMT
The traffic is continuously, which means when insert new records, at the
same time, old records are executed (deleted)

And the execution are based on time condition, so some stored records will
be executed (deleted), some will be executed in the next round.

For given TTL, it is same as delete, it will also generate the Tombstone.
