Compacting and compressing
- Configuring compaction
Steps for configuring compaction in DataStax Enterprise. The compaction process merges keys, combines columns, evicts tombstones, consolidates SSTables, and creates a new index in the merged SSTable.
Compression maximizes the storage capacity of DataStax Enterprise nodes by reducing the volume of data on disk and disk I/O, particularly for read-dominated workloads.
