The Kudu master currently keeps a record of all tables and partitions,
including those that have been deleted. With a high enough rate of
table deletion it's theoretically possible for that to consume a lot
of disk space or memory. In practice (and since you mentioned you'd do
it once an hour) I wouldn't expect it to be a problem.

There shouldn't be any long-lasting impact on the tablet servers
though; tablets belonging to deleted tables are completely expunged
from disk.

Alternatively, you may find it more intuitive to model the "create
new, wait, then drop old" data motion via range partitions in a single
