@surbhibohra94_150464 The component files do not contain "real" data, just metadata on the respective -Data.db SSTable file. Are you able to give some background or additional context on what you are trying to achieve? It might allow me to provide a better answer. Cheers!

i wanted to understand the dependecy of all these files on each other and how metadata or data is stored inside each of these files. once i tried using sstabledump on only data files it didn't work then i copied all these subsidiaries files then i could use sstabledump with it. so there is some dependency i wanted to understand this. if there is any tool then that could really help.

@surbhibohra94_150464 Unfortunately, there isn't. Just know that you need to all the component files with the data in order to access them with the SSTable utilities. Cheers!
