Which version of Cassandra are you using? Which compaction strategy are you
AFAIK, a repair doesn't trigger a major compaction, but I might be wrong
What you could do is to run a repair for a subset of the ring (see `-st`
and `-et` `nodetool repair` parameters). If you repair 1/1000 or the ring,
repairing the whole ring will take ~1000 longer than your sample.
Also, you might want to look at incremental repairs.
If you kill the process in the middle the repair will not start again. You
will need to reissue it.
