Hi All, In order to evict tombstones, I issued full repair with the command "nodetool -pr -full". Then the data load size was indeed decreased by 100G for each node by using "nodetool status" to check. But the actual disk usage increased by 500G for each node. The repair is still ongoing and leaving less and less disk space for me.
From compactionstats, I see "Anticompaction after repair". Based on my understanding, it is for incremental repair by changing sstable metadata to indicate which file is repaired, so in next repair it is not going to be repaired. But I'm doing full repair, Why Anticompaction? 9e09c490-f1be-11e7-b2ea-b3085f85ccae Anticompaction after repair cargts eventdata 147.3 GB 158.54 GB bytes 92.91% There are pare sstable files. I mean they have the same timestamp as below. I guess one of them or both of them should be deleted after during repair, but for some unknown reason, the repair process failed to delete them. -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 237G Dec 31 12:48 lb-123800-big-Data.db -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 243G Dec 31 12:48 lb-123801-big-Data.db C* version is 2.2.8 with STCS.
