Is it best practice to enable repair through OpsCenter?

I have DSE Cassandra 5.1.11 cluster with 09 EC2 nodes OS :-centos , having OpsCenter 6.7.6 for monitoring and Management of multiple Clusters of same version.

Question is :- is it best practice to enable repair through through OPScenter ,

if repair enable through OPScenter does it also internally calls/executes AntiEntropy (Merkel tree build) and completes execution of required compaction so that we no need to run compaction on any of key space or tables explicitly? or still do we need run compaction explicitly on required key space or tables

Thanks

Yes, we recommend you run repairs through OpsCenter. OpsCenter makes the same JMX calls that the nodetool utility does to run repairs.

In relation to compaction, I don't understand why you need to run them manually. There is almost no scenario where you need to run compactions manually. I suggest you log a ticket with DataStax Support if you need assistance. Cheers!

You mean to say no need of running compaction explicitly for key space or Table only the minor compaction(Internal compaction getting kicked off) is enough when repair is enabled through OPScenter?

There is no reason for an operator to run a manual compaction at all.

The only exception is if you were instructed by a DataStax engineer to address a specific issue. Cheers!
