Re: [External] Maximum SSTable size

I’ve had SSTables as big as 11TB. It works, read performance is fine. But, compaction is hell, because you’ll need twice that in disk space and it will take many hours 🙂

Avoid large SSTables unless you really know what you’re doing. LCS is a great default for almost every workload, especially if your cluster has a single large table. STCS is the actual Cassandra default but it often causes more trouble than it solves, because of large SSTables 🙂

Hope that helps!

Hello Community,

Is there a maximum SSTable Size?  
If there is not, does it go up to the maximum Operational System values? 

Thanks in advance,
