Subject running out of diskspace during maintenance tasks
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:01:45 GMT
I'm running on AWS m2.2xlarge instances using the ~800 gig
ephemeral/attached disk for my data directory.  My data size per node is
nearing 400 gig.

Sometimes during maintenance operations (repairs mostly I think) I run out
of disk space as my understanding is that some of these operations require
double the space of one's data.

Since I can't change the size of attached storage for my instance type my
question is can I somehow get these maintenance operations to use other

Failing that, what are my options?  Thanks.
