Well it’s not like that. We don’t just purge. There are business rules which will decide
the records to be purged or archived and then purged, so cannot rely on TTL.

Sounds like you are using Cassandra as a queue. It's an antibiotic pattern. What I would do
would be to rely on TTL for removal of data and use the TWCS compaction strategy to handle
removal and you just focus on insertion.

      Wanted the community’s feedback on deciding the schedule of Archive and Purge job.
Is it better to Purge a large volume of data at regular intervals (like run A&P jobs once
in 3 months ) or purge smaller amounts more frequently (run the job weekly??)

Some estimates on the number of deletes performed would be…upto 80-90K  rows purged in 3
months vs 10K deletes every week ??
